Dinesh Ji....sorry to have doubts.....to me this seems very likely that..the flowers belong to Cuscuta and not the shrub...

Very true Nidhan ji. I am rubbing my eyes now !!
I mistook the flowers to belong to the shrub.
Thank you very much.

Many thanks to Balkar ji for his upload of Cuscuta europaea var. indica Engelm. (synonym of Cuscuta europaea L.)

Thanks Nidhan ji. The flowers were so closely attached to the shrub that I was at complete loss to guess any thing.
