Hi All
 
I found this flower blooming in an area that is 12 km from Dharamshala H.P. The tibetan community call it touch me not and use it for releif from stinging nettle encounters.

This should be Rugged Yellow Balsam (Impatiens scabrida)
We also photographed it at Dharamsala! :) More info here:

I was not aware of its use as an antidote to Stinging Nettle.
Cheers!
