I think its correct name is P. longifolia var. Pendula, commonly known as Indian Mast tree or Ashupal/Asopalav in Marathi. P.longifolia is another species of spreading branches (instead of erect) not commonly planted in the gardens.

@Ogaleji 
The Marathi name of P. longifolia var. Pendula, is Devdar I think
Do you have a pic of P Longifolia of spreading branches to share and if possible its Marathi name
