Hi all
Photographed this flower from Pench Tiger Reserve Seoni. This herb grows during monsoon, reaches up to 1.5 to 2 feet in height.
I think this belongs to Acanthaceae family
Pleas ID it.
Thanks in advance

Dear Dungriyal ji,
I have seen similar plants as a child at Mysore. The local people
would call it spetica. The Hindu ladies wove lovely gardens of the
flower after taking great pains to pick them in the morning. I have
seen three different colours , one was white, the other was light blue
and the third was light pink.
I hope this gives a clue to someone who knows more about it.
Regards
Yazdy.

I think it's Asystasia mysorensis (Roth) T. Anderson. I shot similar
pictures on 11/10/09 in Ananthagiri HIll forest, in Rangareddy district of
Andhra Pradesh, which are attached.
