If not mistaken in Marathi called as Khadak Ambadi. The leaves are sour to taste. Also is used in carry by tribals. Is seen only during rainy season or with first showers of name.

It is Impatiens sp (most probably I. acaulis) of Balsaminaceae
family.

Neilji, it seems that the link doesn't work. When I tried it took me
to yahoo mail sign in page.


Regards,
Giby

This is Impatiens acaulis (Balsaminaceae), 

This plant is stemless, very often mistaken for Begonia sp.
