Have I spelt કંકસની for kankasani correctly?
If not, can you please provide the corrected word ?
Some other names found for this plant in Gujarati are: dudhio ( દુધિયો ), vacchanaag ( વચ્છનાગ ) ... if possible, please validate the correctness.
Thanks and regards.

First of all.Claps :) Claps:)
I think you have forgotten to write the Marathi name Kal-Lawi
which has double meaning.
1)It stimulates labour contractions in pregnancy and
2)Its presence is supposed to induce quarrels amongst people.(This meaningful concept is also there in some other language.

Anyway you have already appreciated my picture before my posting it, Let everyone have a look at it.It is already there in my blog titled Liliaceae.(Sorry, It is not as beautiful as that posted by Dinesh) Though it is endangered species it is not that uncommon and I have seen at least 10-15 plants in one trip near Khambataki ghat and also in Konkan.

Subject: [indiantreepix:7374] Gloriosa superba ...
... for Flora Picture of the Year 2008
Sometimes the Stars, the Moon, the Sun -- all of them are happy at the same moment -- I mean happy with my photo-shooting skills.
One such moment: September 16, 2007 11.03am ... clicked Gloriosa superba at Valley Park, Navi Mumbai.
Native of India (and south-east Asia) ... a very different flower ... colors blending from green to yellow to orange to red ... and almost to scarlet ... a very different plant of lily family ... reaches out for support with help of its leaves ... the leaf tip elongates to form a very slender tendril to coil around nearby support.
Commonly known by many names: climbing lily, creeping lily, fire lily, flame lily, gloriosa lily, glory lily, malabar glory lily, superb lily, tiger claw ... and kandhal in Tamil (காந்தள்) ... it is the State Flower of Tamil Nadu, India.
