Photographed at my farm at Shahapur yesterday. Unfortunately do not have any photographs of it flowering / fruiting.
Also, it is not Mucuna pruriens [Common Cowitch / Khaj khujli] which is flowering & fruiting right now.
Thank you Dr. Pankaj for this lead. This is not Spatholobus parviflora [Butea parviflora] as I have many Butea parviflora climbers on my property, so the only other possibility is Butea superba. Remember Dr. Almeida telling me that B.superba is very rare.
Will have to wait for more inputs or till the plants flower / fruit.

Thanks Dr.Pankaj, but don't think the leaves look anything like this. Will have to try some other lead.
Have only recently noticed this liana so am not aware of the nature of its flowers / fruit. Will keep a watch and let you know.
P.S. - Also don't think it is the Indian Kudzu [Pueraria tuberosa].
Just received a reply from Santosh Yadav [Dr. Almeida's student]. He feels it could possibly be the Indian Kudzu [Pueraria tuberosa]. Will have to check again.
