Torenia cordifolia Roxb. of Scrophulariaceae family. 

Photographed from a coffee estate in Sringeri 12th October 2011. The area is under total destruction as they use herbicide to kill all plants other than coffee. I havent seen this pretty species with beautiful flowers elsewhere even in the surrounding forests. 
I had put some stems in my friends farm who keeps the local Orchid species in the soppinabetta forest that belongs to him. 



Regards,
Giby
