A reply:
"Dear all,
Can this be a species of Lindernia (Scrophulariaceae)? may be L. ciliata

Thanks, Nidhan ji & Ritesh ji,
I think it matches with details as per links of Lindernia ciliata (Colsmann) Pennell (Fringed False Pimpernel • Manipuri: কিহোম মান Kihom Man) of  Scrophulariaceae (Dog flower family)

It could be Lindernia antipoda. Flowers here are larger in size.

I think the plant is Lindernia antipoda only.

In Lindernia ciliata, leaf blades are sessile or clasping, margins of blades are sharply & deeply serrate, the teeth spreading in to a setaceous tip, Corolla ca 5 mm long. 
But in Lindernia antipoda, leaf blades are petioled, elliptic, sharpely serrate, but the teeth not setaceous tipped; Corolla ca 13-15mm long (After, Francis W Pennel, 1943. A second summary of the Scrophulariaceae in New Guinea, Journal of the Arnold Arboretum. 24(3): 250)
Your plant corroborates the characters of L. antipoda.

This is not Lindernia ciliata, for sure as Manudev pointed out, L.
ciliata has sessile leaves and corolla is white with pink throat.

I think it is the same species that I had posted few days back

http://groups.google.com/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/9c92e4f1281d83a1/dda4c0b95e27066a?lnk=gst&q=Lindernia#dda4c0b95e27066a

The leaves of L antipoda is elliptic obovate and is about 2.5cm. Here,
if my assumption is correct, the leaves are more than 3cm long.
Further, the key in The flora of the Tamil Nadu Carnatic (page 1083)
says that calyx margin serrulate in L antipoda
Calyx margin entire for Lindernia ruellioides


I think this is Lindernia ruellioides even the one that posted on
August 2. (The flora of the Tamil Nadu Carnatic (1983), page 1092)

Giby

"This is not L. antipoda the leaves in L. antipoda is not so broader, flower is also slightly different.
Further the id in the given link is also not conclusive as the plant given in that thread and my thread (this thread) looks similar.
Thanks and Regards,
Giby"
