Eggs of Amboli Bush Frog. This is an evolution in this species of frog where they have skipped the tadpole stage and complete the cycle in a thin layer of egg itself, to avoid predation during their tadpole stage.

A famous snake from Amboli - Malabar Pit Viper (Trimeresurus malabricus). While the green morph of the snake is quite common, other morphs, such as this pale brown one, are less frequently seen.

Rachit Mehta Superb. Where did you stay in Amboli?

Bush frog eggs -
Instead of tadpoles, miniature versions of adult frogs directly hatch out from bush frog eggs. The tadpole stage is in fact completed inside the egg itself, with the help of some nutritious yolk. This strategy in fact helps bush frog young ones be better prepared for dry spells they might encounter during the monsoon, and reduces the loss to predators (among other benefits).
These are probably eggs of Bombay Bush Frog (Raorchestes bombayensis).
