Dear Dr. Mahadeswara Swamy,
Thanks for the response, here is the close up of the flower.
Based on your description the tree/shrub appears to be B tomentosa.
If the flower close up is not adequate, then let me know, I shall post
the foliage pics in couple of days.
Pradip Krishen has said that the list in his book is a comprehensive
one, but not completely exhaustive and that more species are being
added, and that he had to limit the number of species for his book.
I have seen this tree in 2 separate localities in Delhi.
Hope the flower close up helps.
