Many thanks Usha ji.
I am eager to know about the relatively longer stalked and larger flowers that I see at Flowers of India ( http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Roth's%20Spike%20Thorn.html )
Am I mistaking the small stuctures in one of my above photos to be very tiny flowers ?
 
Regards.

  I too agree with Ushajee...
Its Gymnosporia rothiana Commonly known as "ispeet ele"in kannada  because of its diamond shaped leaves. Its pretty common in Western ghat part of Uttara Kannada and Medicinal too...

Hi Dinesh,
  The minute structures in question could be Cauline [Adventitious] buds.
