Phlogacanthus thyrsiflorus
This is lal basak gaach in bengali....
as the name implies it can be stand in for throat pain, inflammation and cough... being used mostly as an analgesic activity in folk and ayurvedic uses, at least locally in Kolkata...
To me it appears like Red Nongmangkha (Phlogacanthus pubinervis) rather than Nongmangkha (Phlogacanthus thyrsiflorus), if the id at FOI is correct

Sorry, this appears a bit different from other posts & may be Nongmangkha (Phlogacanthus thyrsiflorus) only.
