Dear friends,
I have not seen this flower earlier; no idea. It was the sole flower there. The flower measured about 3/4th inch across. I could not make out any other aspects of it. I will be happy to know at the least the family it belongs!  

Indianthus virgatus (earlier Schumanianthus)

Could be Murdannia sp,
i dont think so, ...
