Balkar ji, nice capture of the flowers.   We have two trees growing in our society compound.  The flowers are used in the worship of Lord Shiva.    Fruits looks like a canon ball, hence it is also called cannon ball tree.

Regards,

Mani.

Thanks Mani Ji
I saw this tree first time there and nobody was allowed to go near to it to safeguard flowers for worship. Zoom lens could help me to get closeup

One more info.  If there is air pollution near the tree, it sheds it leaves and new leaves appear after some days.

Regards,

Mani.

Nice pictures  Balkar ji. To add to Mani ji 's info. - the tree  sheds its leaves thrice in a year, if there is an external environmental pollution near the tree, it will shed its leaves and will remain  leafless for a week. In Mumbai it flowers throughtout the year. 
 
regards,
Rashida.
