Hi Geeta,
Nice pictures.
The Datura variations in my place,
Mysore district, are very short. I had the impression they grow about 3-4 feet.
 
Thanks for sharing
Raghu

We call Datura these days "vuvuzela", which is being seen and heard everywhere during the last two weeks, of Football WM. Thank god, Datura doesn't harm your ears.

Thanks everybody.
Raghuji, Datura you are talking about may be Datura Ferox which is a small  herb with broadly ovate sinuate leaves & flowers on stout axillary peduncles. It is found in plains.
 The pictures I have posted are of Datura arborea  also called as Angle's Trumpet. It has ovate leaves with flowers on drooping axillary peduncles.This plant is endemic to Chilli & Mexico. In Maharashtra it is found in hilly areas like Mahabaleshwar & Khandala-Lonavala.
  Regards,
 Geeta Samant.

Dear Geeta
What Raghu is talking about, it could be herbaceous Datura either D. metal or D. innoxia.
I have attached the image of D. INNOXIA here.

Pls Raghu confirm this species whether it is same or not.
