Dear Prashant and Tanay, had based my query on the posted plant's similarity to C. decapetala whose inflorescence seems to me more crowded with buds at the apex,
A view at http://www.flickr.com/photos/dinesh_valke/3132082635/in/photostream/

Dear Dinesh Ji,

I think the reason for the compactness of the inflorescence observed by you in respect to Arati Ji is because the plant possesses a racemose inflorescence (raceme) same like that we see in a grass. The mature flowers are always at the base giving the inflorescence a lax look where as the meristematic (growing) tip portion contains the young buds which have just developed hence are more compact in arrangement over floral axis.

 

Regards

Tanay
