Found the above in a place called 'sunrise point' near the tourist place Saputhara in Gujarat in July.Is the flower common in the region? A cafetaria was seen built and abandoned nearby. There were many plants of this species on the grass meadow. There was also a pair of Indian Kestrels flying around - possibly breeding.

Hello,
It seems to be Habenaria grandifloriformis.
if u have information about habit and leaf, then it will be easy to confirm species.

This taxa is endemic to India.
