Lobelia species ?

To me looks different from comparative images at Lobelia 

Hygrophila sp. ?

I don’t think it is Hygrophila

We should ask … for more photos, including flowers and if possible, fruits

I am stumped. I have been looking at this since last one month or so and digging but nothing remotely comes up.
follow up photographs of the same or similar plants would be necessary

Did it flower … ?

I may have to do another trek to Saavandurga to find out further development of the plant. I hope it will be soon.
Thanks for interest shown by all of you.
