Thanks, Dinesh ji for the genus Id.
I think it's Lonicera webbiana as per Concise Flowers of the Himalaya & as per links: (illustration),

From the petal arrangement, position on twig, colour of flower and leaf looks like Michelia champaca, family Magnoliaceae.  Also called Sonar ( golden ) Champa in Bengali, I think.  It is a very fragnant flower.
In Lonicera japonica, Japanese Honeysuckle, as seen in pic in link below, 4 petals ( or maybe one large one ) are  pointing upwards and a single, thin one pointing downwards.  Also the colour seems white, only dried ones get a creamish gold colour.   
I also feel the Champa is more commonly seen here in India.  Did the flower in pic IMG_0040.JPG have a strong fragnance Thiru ? That could be the deciding factor.

Out of 2 possibilities Michelia and Lonicera, I rule out Michelia. Both are very frangrant flowers.
As Michelia is a tree. Photograph in an earlier post by Thiruvengadam Ekambaram comes very close to Lonicera.
Lonicera is a climber.
I have attached my pictures.

most probably Lonicera quinquelocularis, definitely not L. webbiana, attaching images of webbiana for more confirmation.
