Neanotis oxyphylla (Wall. ex G.Don) W.H.Lewis, Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 53: 39 1966. (syn: Anotis oxyphylla (Wall. ex G.Don) Wall. ex Hook.f.; Oldenlandia oxyphylla Wall. ex G.Don);
Assam; Bangladesh; East Himalaya as per POWO;
Wall. Cat. 6193 (Hedyotis) ; glabrous, root perennial, stem stout erect, leaves petioled linear-lanceolate, stipules long lanceolate simple toothed or laciniate, cymes terminal subcorymbose many-flowered, peduncles and pedicels erect, calyx-teeth short broad, capsules pedicelled turgid hemispheric, cells 5-8-seeded. Oldenlandia oxyphylla, G. Don Gen. Syst. iii. 531.
KHASIA MTS. ; in marshy places, alt. 2-5000 ft., common. Stem 12-18 in.,
simple, rarely branched above, as thick as a goose-quill below, and rooting at the lower nodes. Leaves 4-6 by 1/4-3/4 in., tapering to the base, dark when dry ; stipules 1/2 in., base ovate, not connate, coriaceous, erect. Cymes much divided with slender erect peduncles and pedicels. Corolla pale lilac, much longer than the calyx-teeth.—Specimens from Griffith’s collection are marked as from Darjeeling, probably by mistake for Khasia.

Looks like Oldenlandia sps
Houstonia longifolia Gaertn. ???
I agree with Oldenlandia or Hedyotis only, need to check with local floras,
Any chance it may be Neanotis oxyphylla (G.Don) W.H.Letois?
I guess it is matching Neanotis oxyphylla (Wall. ex G.Don) W.H.Lewis
