Swagat ji looks like it is Vinchavi. Posting a pic of Vinchavi with flower buds for comparison, taken on the way to Kaas plateaus, Satara district, in Sep '09.
 
regards
Rashida.

In my region farmers practice Traditional Agricultural Knowledge about Martynia to manage crop pest in many crops including rice. Herbal Mala prepared from Martynia is used by Tantriks. For details please visit
