I found this shrub concentrated in a small area in Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Mumbai, mostly consisting of folded papery seed pods and a few leaves. I found just one small white flower with pale violet streaks. Some kind of Crotolaria or smithia sps.??

Hi Kiran
The plant is Flemingia bracteata (Roxb) sy. F.strobilifera (L) R.Br. var bracteata (Roxb.) from Fabaceae.
The folded papery structures a the bracts enclosing the flowers
