You know in our place Asana tree is for Terminalia alata!! They say
that the log doesnt bend if dried in sunlight or kept in water. So I
found it good for hanging my orchids on to it...

But this is not Terminalia. I was just talking about the local name, Asana.

According to me this looks like Bridelia retusa (Asana असाणा)  only.

Hello,

I agree with Dr. Pankaj Kumar, this plant is not any Terminalia but it is not Asana either as the leaves of Asana appears to be a bit dull and broader. Still i might be not correct.
