Came across this Ruellia Var. in Sohra forest (near Shillong- Cherapunji). To me it looks to be "Ruellia Strepens". Not sure. 
Pl. comment on its ID...
I get the same feeling Ruellia Strepens (limestone wild petunia) by looking at pictures at http://www.missouriplants.com/Blueopp/Ruellia_strepens_page.html & http://www.cas.vanderbilt.edu/bioimages/species/rust2.htm
