S. anguivi is supposed to have many flowers in raceme like cymes, also the flowers are smaller in size. But then as you said leaves do appear distichous (I hope you meant that).

Solanum Viarum has much sharper bristles, they also have bristles on
the leaves, very sharp ones. It can not be S. Angui because the leaves
of S Anui are smaller and so are the flowers.

Yazdi ji
I hope you meant spines. For me closest match was S. viarum. May you suggest a better match.

Dear Dr. Gurcharan Singh Ji,
My apologies, yes I meant Spines. Unfortunately the picture submitted
by Ekambaram does not have the picture of any fruits. Last year I had
submitted quite a few pictures of S. Viarum , with flowers, fruits and
pictures of leaves having very sharp spines. The flowers were purple.
I had a walk last evening and have taken pictures of what I thought
was S. Viarum but the flowers were off white. I am a bit confused.
However, the link submitted by me in the previous mail does have
pictures of S. Viarum with white flowers as well as purple flowers. In
all these pictures the spines are very sharp.
Last year I had also submitted pictures of some other solanum with
similar leaves and smaller spines but with same purple flowers and
smaller fruits, so unless we have pictures with flruits from Ekambaram
Ji, it is difficult to call it S. Viarum. I will sit down today and
try to identify the plant in Ekambaram Ji's pictures.
Attaching the pictures taken yesterday.
Regards
Yazdy Palia.

Friends, without the fruits, it is difficult to identify. Last year ,
I have so many types of solanum , and solanum viarum had plenty of
spines even on the leaves. They were very sharp and long, this is
different. However there is one thing strange this year, all the
solanum viarum last year had purple flowers, but in the same area,
this year, they are all having white flowers. Have not seen a single
purple flower this year on S. Viarum. What could this be due to?
Regards
Yazdy.
