Abstract: These tiny flowers with a blue single petal , bloom, dance a step or two in the rain and wilt within a few days.



Their petals have a yellow teardrop shaped mark on them. According to a folk tale ,when Ravana abducted, the duo was flying across this plateau, and a few of her teardrops left a permanent mark on these tiny flowers. You will be surprised to know that these poetically named flowering herbs are voracious insectivores! Insectivores like Drosera can be seen having their meal. The victim gets trapped in the slimy secretion at the base of the flower.They devour micro insetc, and this happens underground, away from our observant eyes
