... I got to know from one of my Flickr contacts that this plant is known as maiden hair fern.
Not yet knowing the botanical identity.
 
Attached two photos.
 
Regards.

Dinesh,
 
'Asiantum lunulatum' is called 'Rajhans' 'राजहंस' / 'Hanspadi' 'हंसपदी' in Marathi.
and
'Asiantum caudatum' is called 'Mayurshikha' 'मयूर‍‍शिखा' in Marathi.
 
Regards,

This looks like Maidenhair Fern,  Genus Adiantum, Family: Pteridaceae (Adiantaceae) , sometimes found between bricks or stones on whole walls. Maybe Adiantum cunninghamii, which shows characteristic inrolled leaf margin containing sori. I have seen this type of fern almost covering an old brick wall, dried up in summer but again producing new green leaves after the advent of the rainy season. The leaf stems are dark, almost black, shiny and brittle.

The ferns of this genus(Adiantum) are called as maiden hair ferns.
The tree Gingo biloba has leaves with shape similar to this fern hence it is called as maiden hair tree but it has nothing to do with this fern.

... re-surfacing this post. As of now:
 
 
Dr. E S SANTHOSH KUMAR: ... belongs to Adiantum sp

Sanal Nair: ... is Adiantum lunulatum

Dr. Gurcharan Singh: ... most probably Adiantum caudatum

VijayadasD: ... it is Adiantum caudatum

Mahendraprasad  ... maybe Adiantum cunninghamii
 
 
 
 
... some surfing on flickr and other sites of internet:
 
 
 
 
 
 
Adiantum caudatum seems to be photographer's subject, Google's image results show them plenty, and runs into pages.
Adiantum lunulatum barely shows any image results, the FRLHT's digital herbarium image makes me re-consider the ID.
Adiantum cunninghamii may be ruled out.
 
I think Devendra ji's plant to be A. caudatum ... I may be wrong. Please validate.
 
Regards.

I am sure on this, A.linulatum and A.cunninghamii are entirely different , It is Adiantum caudatum.
