Dear Vijayasankar ji,
Prashant too has thought about M. laxiflora.
Now me too believing it to be.
Some confident validation will resolve the ID.
Here is my - and - Prashant's dialogue:
Dear Prashant, you could be correct !!!
Did not think about alu (M.
laxiflora) because its fruits are globose (spherical) with a tight-fit
cap-like scarred calyx at the bottom.
Please take a look at any of
the photo(s) at http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=Meyna%20laxiflora&w=91314344%40N00

I had come across fruiting of Meyna
laxiflora at Matheran. This they call it as Alu. Just check
by any chance yr plant matches with this.
