Again a tree in fruiting phase. White thick milky juice oozed out on cutting a branch.

 I'm not familiar with this Sapium species, but the flowers and milky sap are consistent with some sort of Euphorbiaceae.

Here is a reply from Neil ji in a seperate mail (i.e. why connecting here for the benefit for everybody):
"Hi Satish,
  Both specimens are of Sapium insigne locally called Chicada. Had last year posted a few photographs of the same. Am sending them again.
  Was away birdwatching in the Greater Rann of Kutch.
                         Reagrds,
                           Neil. "

I am adding two attachments with the following details:
"On 16/3/08 at Jayanti, Duars, West Bengal. I saw this in leafless condition with these fruits/buds. It looked magnificent in its chandelier like look."
These were posted by me at that time- vaguely identified as Sapium insigne vide indiantreepix link: http://groups.google.co.in/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/dadbff856c7c9070/85d775d57042a05f?lnk=gst&q=For+Id+050708JM2#85d775d57042a05f 
Posting them again for final confirmation.

Very typical Sapium insigne- the leaf shape and gland on the back are characteristic( try to take a pic next time) alongwitht the general growing pattern of tree and milky latex (which is extremely poisonous BTW and reported to cause blindness)

Surprising and interesting!! Sapium insigne
PLANT FOR ID 30 SMP 25JAN2009 and PLANT FOR ID 30 SMP 25JAN2009
were at a distance of 15-20 feet in between.
One is completely in flowering phase and the other is completely in fruiting phase.Both trees were without any leaves.After cutting the small branch copious latex oosed out and as Aparna has informed it is very poisonous. Thanks for the info.
