Good luck with that then. ;-) The katydids are very difficult to tell apart even when they are adults. This one will probably eventually get big and green. The best way to be certain of species might be to catch and grow one but I'm not sure how hard that is. Nymph katydids are usually carnivores I think. The cerci of crickets are 2 spines off the back of the abdomen... like on here https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:...

I think it is a katydid not a cricket as suggested above.
Hard to tell species because it is immature.

Mark Ridgway the insect in the link seems to be same as this one. But I didn't understand what you meant....sorry.

No cerci... Tettigoniidae like this in Kerala
