Hi,

I clicked a pic of these flowers today in IIT Bombay. Please let me know what flowers these could be. I do not know what the two clusters of pink flowers seen in the pics are from the same plant or another. I have attached three crops of the image and the following information is available:

Place: IIT Bombay, Mumbai, MH
Approx Alt: Near Sea Level
Habitat: Cultivated - potted plant
Height: About two feet

Regards,

Amar
