Another plant for id from Elagiri hills.
Strobilanthus ?
Some Asystasia sp.
Looks like Asystasia gangetica (L.) T. And. of Acanthaceae.
But please provide more details.
... to me it does not look like A. gangetica.
Will wait for comments.
It could be Asystasia chelonoides (Acanthaceae).
There are two varieties reported; chelonoides and quadrangularis.
Since I dont have reference with key or description I am not able to tell you which variety.

(Is it Asystasia ? ID25062013) as
"A.chelonoides is now A.chelonoides Nees var.variabilis [Nees in DC] Almeida [comb.Nov.]. It is a separate species."
 
Illustration at FOC shows A.chelonoides Nees as a syn. of A. nemorum.
