Kind request to ID this beautiful white flowering plants 
They grow near the  small water bodies formed in the rainy season on the  rocky hill slopes of Bannerghatta (during rains. )
In summer water completely dries out and these plants are no longer found.

Dear Tanay ji, Amol ji,

Spherical  flowers of this aquatic herb  resemble close to Eriocaulon sedgewickii. 

As you said, even these  sedgewickii's grow on rock tops - on the wet clay/sand mixture  close  to the standing rain waters.

PS:  It would have been better, if I had a close up picture of the flower.

Thanks a lot 

Raghu

Dear Raghu Ji,
Eriocaulon sedgwickii is a great choice !! The close up and prominent picture of the flowers are always welcome while identification. Please see the photo By Dinesh ji from the provided link.

... it does look to be Eriocaulon sedgewickii.
Friends knowing Eriocaulon species, would be able to validate.

Regards.
