 This looks like the Tricoloured Pied Flat [Coladenia indrani] on Holostemma annulare. As pointed out by Tanay the leaves in the photograph are not of the climber. Sending one of my photographs for comparison.
                     With regards,

Resurfacing again for ID confirmation

Earlier feedback

Tanay...........................................The leaf in the photo is not of Holostemma !! Holostemma doesn't have serrated leaves. But I think your plant is Holostemma annularium

Although the Tricoloured Pied Flat was my focus but then the flower also drew equal attention when I uploaded it on my laptop. Is the flower Holostemma ada-kodien, a creeper? Is the leaf from the same plant? Taken in Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Mumbai this morning.
