I raised this moth from a caterpillar. i found it in the pond while bathing . i was collecting henna (mehendi) leaves from a tree on the edge of the pond and this fellow might have fallen down when i shook the tree. the caterpillar seemed to eat the bark of the branches instead of the leaves. the moth is very fluffy, hairy and soft and doesnt fly much.
