Yes the flowers are very small. 1-2 cm. I saw two plants near the marshy patch on Vetal tekdi.
From distance I could make out the bright colour amongst the huge growing grasses and initially thought it to be some Cyanotis. But I could unfold the beauty only on closer look and Macro photography.

Dear all,
 
'Exacum petiolare' is called 'Nili Chirayat' 'निळी चिरायत' in Marathi.
