Dear friends,
Please help with the Telugu name gabbusikaya in native script, for Caesalpinia cucullata (syn. Mezoneuron cucullatum).
Ref: 

My attempt:
గబ్బుసీకాయ 
గబ్బు (gabbu) = strong, thick ... A Telugu-English dictionary by Charles Philip Brown
సీకాయ (sikaya) = name for Acacia concinna ... A Telugu-English dictionary by Charles Philip Brown

Regards.
Dinesh

Dinesh ji
గబ్బుసీకాయ- you are perfectly correct; but గబ్బు (gabbu) means- bad smelling 
it is not related to sikaya, but the plant resemble A.concinna except in flower with bad smell it is named so 
thank you
regards
