Hi Pravin
Thanks for showing these wonderful flowers from a small family Hydrophyllaceae considered as sub family of Boraginaceae. In fact I think only this lone member has been reported from this family in Maharashtra. Found in aquatic or semiaquatic regions in Konkan and other places in rice fields and near margins of tanks. 5 Bright blue coloured  petals with filaments of same colour and strikingly white anthers stand out prominently.

highly appreciable pics Pravinjee..
 and good additional informations by Sateeshjee..
.. To add to the much fascinating characters of this plant..there are two styles diverging out in two directions.. and the stigma being bright red- the whole style&stigma together resemble the antennae of an imaginary aliens..
