Yes! Some plants are carnivourus and one of them is Drosera Indica (गवती दवबिंदू). The marvolous droplets seen near the delicate pink flower are not the dew drops but a pericular type of sticky liquid which make the passing insects to stick on the branches. The insects are then 'dissolved' by the chemicals in the dropletes and the dissolved material is then consumed by the plant! Drosera Indica is found in Africa, Australia and India (the name indica is derived from India).This perticular plant was found in "Varandha ghat" near Bhor in the state of Maharashtra.
