Dear Pallavi:
this tree and its flowers remind me of one I have seen in the Hort.
garden in Calcutta: one of the Gustavias....
most like this is : * Gustavia superba*.... flowers of India site has
examples of two different gustavias.......
http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Heaven%20Lotus.html..
that *G. superba* flower was also from Jijamata udyan , picture taken
in 2007....

Dear Mr. Gosavi : you might be right... the flowers do look as if they
are on a longer stalk than the one I have seen....but is that the only
difference?
Taxonomists ....please help.
Thank Usha di

Photographs are not clear. Photographs showing the foliage and
flowers clearly would help proper identification.

It is Gustavia gracilium Miers. it is a shrub not tree,, growing in
Rani baug, Byculla just front of the Director office.
