Hi MR. Garg,
It is Orthosiphon pallidus locally called Jyoti.
Regards,
Neil.

Here is some further feedback from Tabish ji:
"Dear Mr. Garg,
   To me this looks more like Orthosiphon rubicundus. One distinct
difference between O. rubicundus and O. pallidus is that in O.
pallidus the white flower-tube is almost as long as the calyx, whereas
in O. rubicundus the white flower-tube is twice as long as the calyx.
    Best wishes
    - Tabish"

Forwarding again for Id confirmation or otherwise pl.

Earlier relevant feedback:

"The differentiating point between *thymiflorous* and *rubicundus* is leaf
morphology. In rubicundus the leaf has very short petiole-up to 4mm or the
leaf is almost sessile, and in thymiflorous petiole is longer-about 1 to
3cm. " from Geeta ji in another thread http://groups.google.com/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/4c98df330706a81b?hl=en#
In view I am now taking it as Orthosiphon thymiflorus.
