Ingellei or Ingallei, is the local name of a flower that is said to bloom in distant hills. It is a name given by the valley dwelling Meitei people for a flower that blooms in the distant hills . because it blooms in the distant hills it is less sighted but made famous through folk songs. because it is less sighted and it blooms in its solitude, it has an air of mystique….. an exotica that has been made so familiar, yet so less sighted.
