This is not "Anant". This is Tagar and is a very common flower in Western India especially Maharashtra where you come from and you do not seem to know the Marathi name.

Anant is called Gardenia in english and is very fragrant. There are many varieties. So please google and see.

I do not know what Tagar is called. but it is a pretty looking but completely fragrance-less flower.
