Thanks for the Boraginaceae suggestion. One more picture, closeup of the flowers, to supplement.
I think may be from Solanaceae.
This is most likely Tournefortia of Boraginaceae, as … indicated.
Tournefortia pubescens Hook.fil. ??
Tournefortia montana (Syn: Tournefortia candollei) seems to be a good candidate to me.

Boraginaceae member Tournefortia pubescens,
Awesome photographs. I have seen this plant.
I have snapped these at Karbi Anglong District of Assam.
Yes, its planted at a house.
I think this should be Tournefortia montana Loureiro as per images and details herein. Somebody must have collected from the wild and planted in the house.
