According to the local farmers belief, if the wood from this tree is used as a fire wood at home, a quarrel arises between mother in law and daughter in law. There by the villagers avoid cutting of this tree for fuel. In this picture we can see only half of the tree with leaves and the other  half barren.

Thanks, Raghu ji. Sorry, I didn't see that you have already given its scientific name as Diospyros montana. Here is one link for this: http://encyclopedia.frlht.org.in/index.php?plantid=837&calledFrom=VIEW_ALL_SPECIES&sortBy=Y&gPAGE_NO=2&gLOWER_LIMIT=20#view

Jagala ganti mara - Quarrelsome tree

 

This file picture of the Diospyros montana tree that was posted years back shows one half of the tree with leaves and the other half barren. We were positive that leaves would sprout on the side that was hitherto barren. Our patience bore fruit this year (a period of 5 years since the first post) with the tree showing clear signs of green leaves on its barren side. But then, thanks to Nature's fury, the newly bedecked Jagala ganti mara or the   Diospyros montana tree lay uprooted.  Sigh!

A feedback from thread (https://groups.google.com/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/69adc52537775beb?hl=en#):
" ..... Also have serious doubts that the tree in the link provided below by Raghu is actually D.montana.
