I also think this is not erythrina indica as the leaf shape is not matching with that of erythrina indica.

Mani.

Certainly not E.indica . Probably while uploading the photographs
this could have happened. You may send the correct photographs.
Nevertheless, the photograph of the bark is very nice, despite being
some other species.

I think Mohina ji is correct. If you look at the leafless trunk and branches in the first picture, the grayish greenish vertical lines,colour of the bark and some prickles on the bark  is indicative of Erythrina sp.

Rashida.

The not so smooth surface of the stem and branches creates a doubt in
my mind otherwise, I would think it is Venteak or Lagerstroemia
microcarpa. The leaves certainly does not look like Erithrina Indica.
If we had pictures of the seeds, we could be able to make up our mind.
Regards
Yazdy.
