Hi chhari55,
This is not Arum creticum and probably not a member of genus Arum. The spadix is producing pollen (male zone) at the top and there is no sterile appendix above the male zone. Do you have a picture of the whole plant? The inflorescence and leaf markings remind me of Caladium but it's hard to tell.

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Thanks for the photo of the whole plant, it's a beauty. I don't know which variety it is so I'll move the photo to the Parent Plant entry for Caladiums (Caladium)

Starting a thread in the Plant ID or Tropicals forum might help you pin down the variety.
