Please find attached one Tree- the first and the second photo are of
the same tree and accordingly the third and fourth are of the same
creeper. Shot in SGNP, Mumbai.
The first one is possibly Sterculia gutata.

First one looks like Buddha's Coconut (Pterygota alata, syn: Sterculia
alata)

Hi tabish,
It is not Pterygota alata for sure.

The fruits in IMG 1444 appear to be those of Sterculia foetida. Will have to check for the palmately compound leaves of the tree.
The climber may be of Passiflora or ivy gourd.

Hi Sanal,
 It is Sterculia guttata locally called Kukhar or Goldhar and the climber looks like the Great Fringed-flower Vine [Trichosanthes tricuspidata].
