I remember to have seen these flowers in plenty in my childhood in Pune. We used to call it Pivla Dhotra    पिवळा धोतरा

Very common weed in Mysore. Yesterday I took a photograph of this
weed near my house and thought of uploading it. What a coincidence.

Many thanks to all of you.
The relevant page on flowers of india dot net is very informative:
http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Mexican%20Prickly%20Poppy.html

and so is the wikipedia page esp with regards to mustard oil becoming toxic on adulteration with just 1% oil of mexican poppy.
