... reminds of Dalbergia lanceolaria, but may not be ... the cluster of flowers in Alok ji's post seem more dense, and of pendulous nature.
Regards.

I think it is Robinia pseudoacacia.

Yes Vijayasankar ji, you are right: Robinia pseudoacacia, the black locust tree, common in western Himalayas and the most abundant deciduous tree in Kashmir valley.

Thanks Vijayasankar ji and Gurcharan ji,
I have not noticed it really in abundance here (especially now since it
is flowering) but a lot of mixed forests in these areas of the himalayas
were coniferised during the Raj days... but one can still find
remenants..
regards
Alok
