Dear friends,
 
Bauhinia malabarica, (syn. Piliostigma malabaricum) a deciduous tree, and dioecious.
Not found commonly in Maharashtra ... I am attaching a few photos of the male plant.
 
Findings as follows:
10 OCT 09 -- Tungareshwar Wildlife Sanctuary
28 SEP 09 -- Saphale Ghat
30 SEP 07 -- Nagla block of Sanjay Gandhi National Park
 
 
commonly known as: Malabar bauhinia • Assamese: kotra • Bengali: karmai • Garo: bakbakhol, beolphiu, migong thak • Hindi: अम्ली amli • Kannada: ಬಸವನಪಾದ basavanapaada • Konkani: कोरट korat • Malayalam: ആരമ്പുളി aarampuli • Marathi: अम्ली amli, कोरळ koral • Nepalese: टाँकी tanki • Oriya: gumbati • Sanskrit: अम्लपत्रः amlapatrah, अश्मन्तक ashmantaka, अश्मयुक्त ashmayukta, यमलपत्रः yamalapatrah • Tamil: மலையாத்தி malai-y-atti, புளியாத்தி puli-y-atti • Telugu: పులి చింత puli chinta
 
 
Earlier misidentified it to be Bauhinia thonningii ... it appears in my response to Rashida ji's post "Bauhinia foveolata -- Chamoli" at http://groups.google.co.in/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/b4230a4a8f471151?hl=en
Many thanks to Ingalhalikar ji for correcting me.
 
Regards.

Hi Dinesh,
 Great photographs!!!  Just for your information - an easy way to differentiate Bauhinia malabarica from the other Bauhinias is to taste the leaves. They taste a bit like Imli [Tamarind].
                 Regards,
                   Neil.
