Looks like a member of Scrophulariaceae. Any Lindernia sp?

Dear Muthu Karthick,

This would be Stemodia sp. of Scrophulariaceae. If you can give size
of corolla it might be helpful. I am not aware of distribution of
species of Stemodia in TN. Regards

Listen, I am not an expert, but for what it's worth the flower itself resembles the common bluebellHyacinthoides non-scripta except that bluebell flowers are usually in clusters. Plus it belongs to temperate climes.

Dear Shrikantji,
The plant matches the characters like sessile serrate leaves; two linear bracteoles; 8 x 5 corolla, etc.
Henceforth it is Stemodia viscosa distributed all over Tamil Nadu. The  herb is native to Indian sub continent.

Thanks for your guidance.

This species is totally different from Companula [HareBell] and Hyacinthoides non-scripta.
