An areca farm worker carrying home dhoodi (dudi, dhudi ...  guess its a silk cotton tree ) leaves and stalk, as fodder for his sheep and goat

How do the tree look like then? Will post a tall doodi tree from the areca plantation soon.

I think it is Ceiba pentandra Bombacaceae. I am not sure.

Does look like a Bombacaceae member! But cant be sure about Ceiba. Why
not Bombax?

Generally (or always) Ceiba pentandra is planted around fields/plantations mainly for extraction of silk-cotton. Bombax ceiba is seldom planted. And the plants in the pictures look more of the former species to me.
