Dolden-Milchstern (Ornithogalum umbellatum) from my garden in Ritterhude: I am not quite sure, that these are also found in India. 
Still I am posting the fotos taken on 1.may 2011. They are one of my favorite flowers, as the flowers appear very early in the year to announce the end of the winter. 
It is common in Kashmir, seen a lot during my research days.
Wonderful to see them... their uniqueness...  almost the first to appear after the snow... they are gone very quickly from the meadow...naturalized from escaped plants from garden in NY suburbia... one question: do your flowers have green tinge on the back of the petals too?
They mostly have ..
