Wild Turmeric (रान हलद in Marathi) I've observed it flowers by the end of may here in Mumbai's wildlife region, but this time it flowered little late..I think by start of June it started flowering.

Dear Mani Ji,
This I hope is some species of Campanula from the family Campanulaceae commonly known as bell-flower family. See the flowers it just looks like Bells !!! A common plant in Garden

Sorry for my earlier post - this one is NOT FairyThimbles (Campanula
cochleariifolia). It should be
Canterbury Bells (Campanula medium)

Sorry, there is an error in place where the photo is taken.   It is not in the Mughal Gardens, but a garden in Srinagar.

Error is regretted.

I have checked my photos in picassa.  The flower is photographed at Mughal Gardens only.
