I think it is called Mugut in Marathi may be because it resembles the Helmet of Roman Guard.

I have yet to come across this. How common is this in Matheran area?
..., in last 3 years of search in Matheran, it is my first sighting. In the area, where I located it this time is very much frequented by me but this was the surprise of the time.
Truly interesting plant. When I first read this mail I was reminded of calycanthus, till I found out that there is genus Calacanthus of Acanthaceae.
Base of Chanderi hill (From Vangani side) also has the distribution of this plant. I had also spotted this plant at Chandoli Forest.
