That is a flower of the Indian Bitter Gourd (Karela in Hindi) - I love these creepers. The mist you see in this picture is not real. Some moisture got trapped between the lens and camera mirror due to high humidity levels. I didn't realize it until I took this shot and saw it on the camera's LCD. The moisture problem was corrected by removing the lens and placing it back after some time. I liked the picture this way even though it didn't have the sharpness and details I was initially planning to capture.
