Beautiful. Is this the one from which they make what we call in Marathi Gulkand. 

Interesting question, because there is not much said about the exact rose species that is used for making gulkand.
Am afraid, this rose might not be the one used in making of gulkand.

This is interesting  ( may b unique too) – rose submerged in water n blooming !!!
Usually we water rose plant  infrequently ,deeply  but not  daily ( It encourages strong root growth ).

DV :: 30MAR11 – 0559 :: Rosa leschenaultiana at Madikeri: Attached (cropped) photos are of one of the rare rose found in the high altitude wilderness of southern and central Western Ghats … most probably endemic.
Rosa leschenaultiana Red. & Thory ex. Wight & Arn … Rosa sempervirens var. leschenaultiana Thory (basionym)
Not much is discussed about this plant on the internet.

    Used “Wildflowers of Kodagu” by Dr T Ananda Rao as reference for ID … he mentions local name as ಕಾಡು ಗುಲಾಬಿ ಹೂವು kaadu gulaabi huvu, translated would mean: wild briar (OR brier) flower
    A Badaga-English dictionary by Paul Hockings, Christiane Pilot-Raichoor has an entry for this plant with English names as Nilgiri cluster-rose, Nilgiri dog-rose.
    Will be glad to know the Tamil name of this plant OR the local name used by people of Nilgiri … would it be semmati OR cemmati ?
    Date/Time : March 30, 2011 at 5.59pm IST
Location Place : outskirts of Madikeri town, Karnataka … 12.450505,
75.711958 on Google maps <http://goo.gl/maps/9b5F>
Altitude : 3606 ft (above mean sea level)


– … got this book from “The Shoppe” in the premises of the “Kodagu Valley Resort” of Club Mahindra … about 8 kms away from Madikeri town.

    Wildflowers of Kodagu Dr T Ananda Rao published by Coorg Wildlife Society 1999 Price: Rs 160, 48 pages.
    106 plants briefly described along with colour photo, common name in English (if any) and local name (if any)

I know little about the flora of the region but I have serious doubts that the rose photographed represents a ‘wild’ species. It clearly is a cultivated plant.  My understanding is that the wild R.leschenaultiana has SINGLE flowers.
The situation is confused by the JCB Herbarium see: http://florakarnataka.ces.iisc.ac.in/hjcb2/herbsheet.php?id=3768&cat=1  having a photo of a similar cultivated rose as this.  Whereas they have a pressed specimen with single flowers.  In the description it says 5 large white petals!
The line drawing on Wikimedia, see: https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Rosa_leschenaultiana#/media/File:Rosa_leschenaultiana.jpg  also does NOT match the images taken at Madikeri.
