Requesting to please provide ID of the plant captured at Jijamata Udyan Flower Show in February 2013.
Is this Ocimum kilimandscharicum?

most likely not
leaves and stalk should be blue i think and markedly scented leaves even if you just touch them
looks like you had to bend the branch to take the picture so did your finger get scented like camphor?

I do not recollect the scent….those were very very very early days of clicking pics of plants….

Please check for Orthosiphon species as well (Orthosiphon stamineus ?)

The identification is correct
