Dregea volubilis from Delhi, was photographed growing over hedges and park fence, and was identified after a lot of discussion, some members initially suggesting species of Marsdenia but fruits finally clinching the issue. The plant, however, much more hairy than the plant uploaded by Dinesh ji as per the following link.
