Dear Tabish Ji,
You are right this is indeed a member of Loranthaceae . I think this is Amyema sp ... There is good possibility of this being Amyema melaleucae(Miq.) Tiegh.Bull.Soc.Bot.France 42:84 (1895). The plant is hemiparasitic on stem.

Regards
Tanay

Perhaps yes, finally identified as  "The plant is Fuchsia boliviana Carr., A South American plant, widely 
cultivated in Tropics".

Appears more closer to images at Fuchsia corymbiflora Ruiz & Pav. rather than those of Fuchsia boliviana at strange wonderful things, Wikipedia  Dave’s Garden
