Hi, Mangesh ji,
Careya arborea is a species under Lecythidaceae family. It is known as Kumbhi in Hindi, and Slow Match Tree in English. It is a deciduous tree, whose leaves turn red in the cold season and grows up to 15m high. Flowers are yellow or white in colour and are like water-pots and produce large green berries. The tree grows all over India in forests and grasslands. The bark of the tree and the calyxes of the flowers are often used for curing coughs and colds.

Careya is used in organic farming to manage pest traditionally. It is also used in treatment of modern, so-called incurable diseases. Link to research articles on Careya.
