Dear Sir,
Thanks a lot for sharing.
This is an Orchid. Cant confirm the species without seeing the
flowers, but if I had to make one guess then I would have gone for
Geodorum densiflorum but that would just be a guess.

If I have to guess this is Geodorum densiflorum, but without flower its impossible to confirm the species.
