Thanks, Aparna ji.
On checking with Flora of Andhra Pradesh at http://forest.ap.nic.in/Forest%20Flora%20of%20Andhra%20Pradesh/files/ff1897.htm, I got this species Aponogeton natans syn. Aponogeton monostachyon & Saururus natans, with picture at Bhadra Wild Life Sanctuary (which matches with my posted pictures): http://www.aquarticles.com/images/Maha%20Bhadra/bws16.jpg & http://www.aquarticles.com/articles/travel/Sriram_Bhadra.html, http://sweetaquatics.com/images/natans.JPG, http://www.fnzas.org.nz/plant_survey/aquarium_plants/?user_plants=15&cHash=a6e3469813 (drawing with some details), http://www.csd.net/~cgadd/aqua/ah_main/jun1999.html (details about Aponogetons including Aponogeton natans),
