So beautiful and delicate Arun. The petals look like those on Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia sp) flowers, in shape only. I do hope you find an ID for this beauty and I do hope it is in a safe spot. Is it a shrub ?

Thank you for your information DespinaTsafetopoulou !!

It cant be a commelina species, that plant looks like a vine, of the favaceae familly, probably some kind of the Caesalpinioideae genera...
