It may be Ravenia spectabilis
Arun Ji Please follow the forrmat for id
Size of your photo is also very small
Pasting from the mail of Gurcharan Ji for clarification

This is for the attention of colleagues sending photographs for ID.
1. Subject line should be unique ID (dd+mm+yyyy+initials+post number for the day) followed by the place (preferably city) where the plant was photographed.
2. Exact locality, its altitude should be indicated
3. Habitat where the plant was growing: cultivated, weed of cultivation, wastelands, roadsides, marshy area, aquatic etc.
4. Habit: Tree, shrub, woody climber, herbaceous climberr, annual herb, perennial herb, etc.
5. Aproximate height of the plant
6. Insersion of leaves, whether alternate (one at each point), opposite (two at each point) or whorled (more than two at each point)
7. Aproximate size of middle leaves
8. Flower diameter and length
9. Fruit size
 
Although some members may find it difficult to provide all details, but they should try to give maximum possible information.
 
For better identification the three photographs accompanying should be : a side view of branch showing clear view of leaves and flowers.; a close up of flower from the side to show bracts, calyx and corolla; a top close up of flower to show stamens and style/s.

If I will send my first post for ID today the subject line would be:
 

18072011GS1 Plant(it could also be herb/shrub/tree/climber) for ID from Kashmir

my second post today for ID would be  

18072011GS2 Plant(it could also be herb/shrub/tree/climber) for ID from Kashmir

and so on
