 Affirmative. This is Tambda Kuda [Wrightia arborea] .My photographs of the flowers and fruit of this tree are available in the archives of this group.
                      Regards,
                       Neil Soares.

It may be W. arborea,, cant guess by this photo, require more photos,
especially pod, but sure Wrightia from Apocynaceae.

Agree with Neil.
Aarti ji, the range of flower color varies from white to pinkish
(sometimes looks pinkish-orange).
Will post my images showing the color variation.

Regards,

Samir
