It is clearly Aster, but to identify the species we should have some details. Diameter of head/flower is the minimum we expect to do that. Alok ji I would again request you to kindly provide information as per the prescribed format in your future mails.

Sorry about that sir...

Never would be a botany expert...but since most of the photos I have
taken are on usually on the run when I just sight something on the way
and stop to take a quick snap... an interest fuelled by this forum
itself...

as I said earlier.. if we are able to id by the flawed info of mine..
it would be a pleasure to know the name.. but otherwise please let us
just appreciate them as 'Jewels of Dalhousie'..
regretfully yours
Alok

This could be Aster thomsonii, found at altitudes of 2100-3000 m.

Yes sessile almost clasping leaves do suggest Aster thomsoni. Thanks for the lead Tabish ji
