Senecio grahamii Hook.f.UnresolvedLTICA
Senecio grahamii Benth.SynonymMTICA

Our plant is S. grahamii Hook.f. now correctly known as S. bombayensis Balakr.
S. grahamii Benth. is a Mexican species now considered as synonym of Roldana barba-johannis (DC.) H.Rob. & Brettell
Since S. grahamii Hook.f. is an illegitimate name, being a later homonym, hence its correct name is now S. bombayensis Balakr.

Nice photographs ... Looks like Senecio grahamii . Wait for more comments on its ID.
Not sure about the identification, but if the identification is correct, the accepted name would be S. bombayensis Balkr. as S. grahamii Hook.f. is an illegitimate name, being later homonym of S. grahamii Benth. a Mexican plant (itself now synonym of Roldana barba-johannis (DC.) H.Rob. & Brettell).

Senecio bombayensis/ Senecio grahamii
"Sonki"

Yes ..., Sonki looking very beautiful ..... the most common flower in Sahyadri ..
Just to set records straight
Our plant is S. grahamii Hook.f. now correctly known as S. bombayensis Balakr.
S. grahamii Benth. is a Mexican species now considered as synonym of Roldana barba-johannis (DC.) H.Rob. & Brettell
Since S. grahamii Hook.f. is an illegitimate name, being a later homonym, hence its correct name is now S. bombayensis Balakr.

I tried but o luck. Only subject expert could help I guess!
Senecio
Senecio edgeworthii or Senecio bombayensis ??
Is the back of leaf white?
Then it may be Senecio bombayensis. Please check. 
Thanks so much … for the ID.
Attaching a cropped pic of what may be the undesride of the leaf. It does seem to be white.
