Pl. confirm: I’ve planted this one in my garden. Locally identified as ‘MAROOAH’ plant. The leaves & flowers are scented, somewhat identical to TULSI but much more scented. Plant has grown to a height of around 2 ft. & is a shrub. This has been planted under shade but still it is doing good. Please identify this one as I’ve tried to search under the name ‘MAROOAH’ but did not get any near results. I’ve searched for ‘Tulsi’ also but no results.
I think this is Ocimum basilicum also known as "Niazbo".
Your Basil is a culinary Basil originating from Thailand, known as Basil Siam Queen... called in Thailand as "Horapha".
Notice the inflorescence's anatomy... its NOT A SPIKE... seems to be a bunch... a cyme or a corymb... and the leaves are large, light green..
Secret of growing culinary basil to eat in italian cooking for pasta or pizza etc is to not to let it go to flower...
becomes bitter... pinching the top keeps the leaves tender and taste just right,  ...
although i must confess I loved seeing these flowers, they are just sooo beautiful... 
Marawa in gujarati is the Lantana whose leaf smells when crushed... earthy ++ unripe mango like....
and its very distinctive, once experienced one does not forget...
may be its the same with some of these culinary herbs,....
 
This Sweet Basil (Ocimum basilicum), once native to India & Persia, is said to be considered by Hindus as a passport to heaven when buried with them.
This was a 'Royal herb' for ancient Greeks, it seems.
http://www.azarboretum.org/plantlist/basil.htm

This is a common kitchen herbal garden plant in TN.
Tamil name: திருநீற்றுப் பச்சிலை (Thiruneetru pachchilai).
Leaf-juice is administered into painful ear for quick relief.
Yes Dr. .., you are right....as I re-read my own message...
I forgot to mention the binomial name of culinary or sweet  basil....
it is indeed Ocimum basilicum,
whatever country or continent it grows in....
and its nice to know its cultivated in TN..
here in cal/kol  it's "imported" from Bangalore gardens and only the stores with refrigeration facility carry them...
Dear ...
1.From the link you have given I could recollect that I have seen this plant quite frequently in some trecks or outings in villages. But did not know the name, neither veracular nor botanical. The leaf of this plant smells like Tulasi and hence is called as Jangali Tulas.
2.The Marawa explaination you have send: Lantana in Marathi is called Ghaneri. Why I dont know. Actually Ghaneri means bad smelling, but some how i personally and many who accompany me on outings like the smell of Lantana and flowers too. No doubt it is species camara.
3,Marawa smells different than Lantana, very nice and cooling smell. It is offered to god. Has a good importance in pooja especially in Ganapati and Gauri festivels. Not very sure but is used in rituals after death,
It is used by the Fisherwoman community in the garlands which they put on their hairstyle (called Veni)
we have a song in Marathi
 Pachu Hirwa Ghalun Marwa
that is wearing a green sari and Marawa in hair
have started getting a doubt again now whether Marawa flowers like this??????

Request for ID : 220611 : AK-1: Taken at Muscat,Oman on the 22nd of March, 2008. Cultivated garden plant.
Ocimum basilicum. Sweet Basil , Kannada - Kama kasturi, Ramkasturi
sure its a basil...
but the leaves look to be too thin for the sweet basil used in western salads and eaten raw or in pesto...
in my experience, when the same seeds are grown in hot climate, or when winter grown Basil plants behave as Sweet Basil, and then are allowed to grow on their own till summer, the leaves become thinner, sharper tasting (almost as sharp as Tulsi leaves) ... and with flowering ends up a little bitter...
Secondly... BASIL..OCIMUM to be exact cross pollinates like crazy and what the end result is often bewildering....
PS did you get to take a picture from the side , so the sahpe of the flower stalk be seen?

Yes Ocimum basilicum

Lamiaceae & Verbenaceae Week: Lamiaceae, Basilikum (Ocimum basilicum) from RitterhudeBasilikum grows only in a pot in my house. Very difficult to grow. Only in summer, I can buy some plants, but they don't survive very long. This time I put some seeds, I had brought from Apulien,  in a pot. So far the plant is alive, but don't know if they survive this winter. Leaves used with tomatos in salad. But snails like the leaves too, unfortunately.
Fotos taken in March 2011.

Lamiaceae & Verbenaceae Week : 110711 : AK-1:  Ocimum or Tulsi taken at Munnar Kerala on 22/10/2008.
Probably growing wild as it was seen at many places in the resort.
Could have been planted too...I'm not sure.
I think Ocimum basilicum
looks like Ocimum kilimandscharicum
Ocimum basilicum only never O. kilimandscharicum
O. kilimandicharicum is an exotic , introduced into India about 3-4 decades ago.

Ocimum basilicum var. thyrsiflorum 'Siam Queen'  

Appears close to images at Ocimum basilicum L. as per comparative images at Ocimum
Can not say anything about variety and cultivar.

Ocimum basilicum has many varieties and cultivars. This one is grown as an exotic pot herb in India. We had procured its plants in 2016 from Delhi and performing very well in Hamirpur (H.P.) and not so good in Shimla. 

Ocimum basilicum var. thyrsiflorum clicked at Shimla in my kitchen garden
Other Ocimum visible in the photograph is O. gratissimum (Boodhhi tulsi)
