An abandoned plot of land in Ravipuram overrun by plants and trees. A bunch of these flowers (glory lily; Gloriosa superba) peeping over the wall. I made the identification using Common Wild Flowers of India by Isaac Kehimkar of the Bombay Natural History Society. According to this book, the plant is found in the wet regions of India and Sri Lanka. It also says that "overcollection of tubers for alkaloid extraction has endangered this plant."
