Are you certain of the ID? It looks very much like a Bignoniaceae
flower and seed capsule.

A synonym for Odina wodier is Lannea coromandelica, with an image
from Thailand shown at this link:
http://tbn0.google.com/images?q=tbn:Ql0giRiL9_WMqM:http://
www.numtan.com/nineboard/picupreply/3307.jpg

The linked image shows a more typical Lannea/Anacardiaceae fruit.

Nonetheless, I love the flowers and rugose seed pod. I hope a
positive ID is forthcoming.

Oh.  It is not Odina wodiyar.  Mr. Barry is right. I can send a photograph of O.wodiyar.   These trees are plenty on Chennai roads. Right now many  are flowering in leafless condition.  They don't provide any shade during the peak summer.  That is why it is not liked.
It is my view that one should not derive the scientific name of a plant based on the local name , as it is often misleading.  One should check the morphological characters.

Hello,
Could this be Radermachera xylocarpa of Bignoniaceae?

Dear  Raghuji
These photographs look like Radermachera xylocarpa .(Bignoniaceae family) Look at the bell shaped flowers classical  of this family.Anacardiaceae family members have very small flowers.Also the new name for Odina wodier is Lannea coromandelica.(Moi in Marathi)For information please refer to earlier discussions of Family of the week: Anacardiaceae and following link.
http://groups.google.co.in/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/a95b06051c49b8f0/a71673a4253806b3?hl=en&lnk=gst&q=+Lannea+coromandelica+#a71673a4253806b3
The earlier name of Lannea is interesting to remember because of its pronunciation which resembles."Oh---Diana !! Oh ---Dear!!!"

Satish

Thanks for the insights. Actually, the  very first sight of the fruit reminded me of  a reedy version of African sausage tree (see the link And the flowers also do seem to indicate a member of the Bignoniaceae. I hope you get a positive ID
