Dear all,
 
As a change am giving a break from the mauve/pink North Bengal wildflowers i have been posting, with Yellow. Here is the first one.
 
Thanks in anticipation.

Looks like Yellow or Orange Cestrum (Cestrum aurantiacum), a relative
of Raat-Ki-Raani (Cestrum nocturnum)

Thank you, Tabish. It indeed looks like Cestrum aurantiacum, though the flowers in my photo hang down as opposed to the ones in davesgarden looking up. The leaves in mine are slightly broader too.
regards,
