Khaya senegalensis and Swietenia mahogani
Both these are Mahogany trees of Meliaceae family.
Khaya is the african variety while Swietenia is probably more native(Probably means: in India for a longer time than other one)
At least in Pune the first one is seen planted in large number by the roadside due to its pale but bright evergreen colour and the Swietenia is becoming less common.....literally one has to search for an occasional saved tree (at least in city)It has a darker green foliage and pointed curved leaves..........You can see the earlier photographs by Dr.Garg.
