i need one help: please can you tell me common name of this plant. actually am writing thesis and this plant also in my list. but unable to know its common name.
I could find two names at Biodiversity and Its Significance edited by Pramod Tandon, Y. P. Abrol, Suman Kumaria (2007) as Sam siphra and Bimchal
Also check another link of Contributions from the United States National Herbarium - Ku-thi is written against Strobilanthes scaber. I do not know if it is a common name. 
Few more names I could find in Edible Medicinal And Non-Medicinal Plants: Volume 7, Flowers By T. K. Lim as Raspatia (Assamese) and Sam Siphra (Meghalaya)
May be ... can help with more names.
