Dear friends,

This plant is Grewia asiatica for me kindly wait for others to respond , morphological variation in terms of color and size is quite common in plants

Hi Dinesh
Beautifully illustrated pictures.
I see following imp. characters here to call it Grewia abutilifolia
Leaves are more ovate and acuminate. Petals are much smaller than sepals.
It will be more  lanceolar in G.helicterifolia
(I have not seen both of these plants so far)
