Thank-you Dr. Mahadeswara, it is Pachystachys spicata also called P. coccinea.
 It was in the park you took us around, Nageswara Rao Park.
 You will be unhappy to hear that they have drastically chopped the branches of the Cocoloba uvifera. It has been almost covered by a Prosopis juliflora.
The Clusia rosea is blooming now. I'll post the pics separately.
Regards and thanks,
Padmini Raghavan.
