To me image looks more closer to images at Abelmoschus manihot subsp. tetraphyllus (Roxb. ex Hornem.) Borss.Waalk. (with three varities) rather than those at Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench

Thanks Garg ji for validating the post; requesting for further validation ...
I am posting a picture of fruit of the plant photographed at base village of Manikgad, posted for listing names.
The plant is cultivated, its fruit is comparatively longer (and there are more varieties bearing yet longer fruits).
The wild species bears fruit just about an inch long.
I believe the posted plant (for listing names) is Abelmoschus esculentus. Please validate again.

Thanks, Dinesh ji.
Posted images now are fine.
In your original image in this thread, epicalyx appears to be 4 or 5 and these are much broader as in your 2nd image of Abelmoschus manihot subsp. tetraphyllus (Roxb. ex Hornem.) Borss.Waalk.

Dear friends, 
Due to onset of the new Google Sites, and eventual sunset of the classic Google Sites, I am moving my data from the existing Names of Plants in India to Google's Blogger. I hope this solution will not let me down again. Thus, my work will now assume shape of a blog for every plant whose names I will gather / compile. One sample blog on Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench for your view.

I have to migrate about 600 odd plants that I had already compiled, to this Blogger, before I set out for new compilations. I hope I will be able to manage it before sunset of classic Google Sites.

Regards.
Dinesh

Nice shot.. Dinesh JI!!
Actually the leaf and fruit morphology played important role here 
A. esculentus are common kitchen garden vegetable in outskirts of Ktm valley too.. looks very close to it ..may differ in var. as fruits size and morphology are different.

Bijay
