… would this be some Pluchea species ?
This plant is Pulchea indica Less. (Syn: Conyza corymbosa, Pulchea corymbosa) from the family Asteraceae/ Compositae. A very common plant around Kolkata marshy lands.
This is a common undershrub found in rural roadside. It is also used as natural fence to guard frontyard or some cultivated garden plants. Could it be a Eupatorium sp.?

Nice pics, should be a Vernonia sp. in my opinion….
Google searched for various Vernonia species, Ageratum & some others for 2 hrs. but no avail !
This is also a very common species. Villagers sometimes use this plant to build a natural boundary wall around their homeyard.
i was wondering if it was Eupatorium species too
Any chance of Ethulia conyzoides L.f. – http://www.meemelink.com/prints_pages/18429.Compositae%20-%20Vernonia%20madagascariensis.htm ???
I think Pluchea indica (L.) Less., as per efi site link:
Thank you very much for the ID and thanks to … too.
Found some images at http://www.hear.org/starr/images/species/?q=pluchea+indica&o=plants and at http://www.mytho-fleurs.com/images/Fleurs_du_Vietnam/Pluchea_indica.jpg (source : http://www.mytho-fleurs.com/images/Fleurs_du_Vietnam/page_04.htm)/
Also attaching some recent pics, recorded on 18/10/12.
Though leaves of this species are more densely dentate than the ones in the above two links outside India, it is possible ID.
