Seems to be a Purple passion flower.

@NMR (post # 56): Water hyacinth

In Bengal, too, it is very common. Although not as common as it was some two decades ago, largely due to the rapidly vanishing water bodies.

Thanks, biman.

Around Bangalore, we still get to see such lakes full of these plants! One such view at Hoskote -

But I couldn't see the flowers during that time (Feb 29, 2012). With a lens you can find many 'Purple swamphens' all over the plants, in this photograph.

Very true. It nearly killed the mansagar lake, Jaipur (between which the beautiful Jal mahal stands), last decade. The entire lake has now been mercifully rid of this plant.

That's amazing. All I know is that it is said to be almost impossible to kill without using herbicides that leave everything else dead as well.

Is it an orchid? I doubt that ... It grows from a bulb and in the ground - we have a few at home (Jaipur). It's called a lilly.

In addition to the name you've pointed out above, it's also called a football lilly as the inflorescence sometimes become nearly spherical.

Some name? Just after the first showers at Sanjay Gandhi National Park, I have seen these emerge out in clusters at a few places. They look lovely here and there.
