Dear tanmay,
This is the caterpillar of the Oleander Hawkmoth and since it feeds on oleander, it is found in many parts of the world where that ornamental plant is grown.  This individual is ready for pupation.  When they are ready to go into the dormant state of metamorphosis, they turn from green to orange/brown.
