Image quality is very poor !

Interesting, this reminds me of Phalaenopsis difformis but cant confirm with proper flower pic. But I know this is not difformis.

This is very interesting.

I think this is Ornithochilus yingjiangensis and now called Phalaenopsis yingjiangensis.
Could be a new record for India, at least for Mizoram.
I still need good images of the flowers.
These flowers are wilted as they are bearing fruits.

2 high res. images.

I will stick to my earlier id.
