The tree is shot on the shore of River Moyar in the Mudumalai WLS on 01 May 2010.

Many of these trees are seen along river shore as well as along streams.

Hi,
 Sending photographs of the leaves of F.racemosa / F.glomerata locally called Umber. The photographs were actually taken [on my property] to show the leaf galls.
                      With regards,
                        Neil Soares.

Dear Neil ji,
I hope these are Eriophyes (a kind of mite) leaf gall , Eriophyes gall are very common and are bright red in colour .

"Same mire" read it as "Same mite"

No Pankaj Ji, this are indeed leaf galls but not caused by Eriophyes !! may be some other. in Eriophyes galls the the hypertrophied leaf tissues turn pink at young stage and then to red like seen in Neil ji's photo. The best way is just to cut a L.S of the leaf through the gall and you can see the eggs or the larvae which can determine the exact organism.

May be you are right but I sent samples to New Delhi to Entomologists. They have identified it. Also researchers from pestnet yahoo group have confirmed it. 

Will try to send the samples again. Thanks.
