Nice catch of the close ups. This is a very very common plant in
Southern India. Almost every house (which has a garden) will plant
this in Chennai, Mysore, Bangalore etc....

Beautiful photos Balkarji.  The leaves have a cooling effect and applied on sole of the feet to reduce burning sensation.  The leaves are also chief ingredients in natural hair dyes.

Regards,

Mani Nair.
