... ¿ Rungia pectinata ? ... commonly known as: comb rungia • Marathi: माशी mashi, सूत sut • Tamil: தவசுமுருங்கை tavacu-murunkai
 
Normally, R. pectinata stands taller than what is seen here; wondering whether the short growth is due to habitat.
 
Regards.

Dear Dinesh ji/ All,
The inflorescence character of the plant suggests that it is Rungia pectinata (Syn R parviflora) but you are right the height is quit low may be due to lack of substratum ans it is growing in rock crevices.
Regards

Thanks Garg Ji.
The entire plant was but a few inches.
I had to bend down and take a picture as far as I can remember.

On further scrutiny of all the posts, I take it Justicia pectinata only.

Garg sir , you were right earlier , though I still have my reservations about Justicia concinna /repens complex (whether two species or one ).
I have said it and I say it again ... Photographs are so beautifully deceptive about sizes !!!
In this image in left lower corner there is one looong spike ... it clearly tells specimen can not be Justicia pectinata /parviflora ( yet to find any literature with difference stated...few sources claim them to be synonyms).

This is Justicia pectinata only as the upper lip of the flower seems to be acute and whitish and not emarginated and bluish as in Justicia concinna
Aarti ji has said "This was taken on 17th April, 09 at Mahabaleshwar. Very small."
Thus flower appears to be quite small as also pointed out by Dinesh ji, leading me to revert back his images from Justicia concinna to Justicia pectinata 
Inflorescence appears to be similar to Rakesh ji's image 3, in another thread. Now the question is to find out difference between Justicia pectinata and Justicia parviflora, which I am not getting.

I think the habit of J. parviflora is prostrate, mat-forming, while J.pectinata is an erect herb with diffuse branching ... this is what I have been considering.
If their descriptions are on this lines, then confusion is taken care of.
Regards.

Taking it as Rungia parviflora var. muralis (Nees) C.B.Clarke with spikes very dense, barren bracts ovate acute hardly longer than the fertile, as per Flora of British India as per discussions in another thread at Sorting Rungia species
