Hello Mam,
I am glad you could identify this in bud condition. This seems most
likely to be Habenaria longicorniculata. Wait for the flower to open
and then add the pic to eflora is possible. Dont forget to smell the
flowers. It has one of the most beautiful fragrance among Marathi
Habenarias.
Regards
Pankaj
