Dear Saroj ji,
Thank you very much for your suggestion.
No branches, it is a mistake, regards, Sam.

Dear Saroj ji,
Thank you very much for ID my plant.  It is very similar to B. malabarica (Malabar is an old nearby state before our Independence, not now) but not hairy and flower bunches are lengthy. My plant fully hairy and I don't see matching images while googling. I also think it is B. anamaliances. With kind regards, Sam.

This is in the B. malabarica/fallax group, which is not well understood. We are currently working on typifying and clarifying these names. It could be a sp nov.

It is definitely not B. anaimalaiensis, which is a short tuberous species in a different section. Type is here: https://padme.rbge.org.uk/Begonia/Data/specimens?padme_collector_names_ss=&padme_collector_number_s=&padme_collection_locality_ss=&padme_current_epithet_s=anaimalaiensis&padme_herbarium_s=.
