... Satish ji ... are they all same plant during different times ... somehow n1, n2 and n4 seem different, the buds and flower seem to be of Sida ... my perception could be wrong.

I didn't remember exactly. I checked the Exif data....
The image Abutilon indicum5 is July 2008 while rest of the images are oct 2009.
Igot your point the leaf pattern also appears different. Do you mean to say different species? You may be right.Wasn't aware of other species till recently.
