Thanks for sharing the beautiful photograph. This tree is very
common in South India. It is a sacred tree in TamilNadu and common
name in Tamil is 'Vanni'. Prosopis cineraria is a multipurpose tree
species: provides fodder, fuel, timber, and shade It brings
about soil improvement and also helps in sand dune stabilization. It
is commonly used in dryland agroforestry in India and Pakistan. I
think it is the state tree of Rajasthan(India) and provincial tree of
the Sindh province of Pakistan. Its synonym is P. spicigera.
Here in Mysore, there are many trees closeby my house.

Thanks for the information Mahadeswaraji, 
I never knew this tree is common in Tamil Nadu; thought its presence is rare.I always have the difficulty in separating tis from P.juliflora.

I don't feel very confident about the identification of above photograph as P. cineraria, because the spines are clearly longer, stronger and paired, and inflorescence much denser.

Both P. juliflora and P. cineraria grow in Delhi and they are quite distinct. In P. cineraria the spines are much shorter, solitary and randomly scattered, it is a taller tree, the spikes are slender, more yellower in colour and lax. It is also common to see rounded insect galls hanging from the tree. pods are slightly flattened and curved

P. juliflora is a medium sized tree or shrub, the spines are longer and paired in leaf axils. The infloresnce is much more dense and pale yellow or creamy in colour, with greenish tinge. the pods are slender, long and cylindrical.

I am uploading both species separately.

I also feel it is closer to images at Prosopis juliflora (Sw.) DC.
