[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Zygogramma bicolorata (Chrysomelidae).

It is a Mexican Beetle, but was introduced into India for biological control trials against the weed Parthenium hysterophorus.

I found it in my parthenium-free garden and made it sit on my fingernail to pose for this photo opportunity!
