Ceiba speciosa (A.St.-Hil.) Ravenna

Syn: Chorisia speciosa A.St.-Hil.; Chorisia rosea Seem

This beautiful tree, great to look at when flowering in autumn, both in Delhi and in California, often planted on roadsides and Parks. My California plamt seems to more attractive flowers and broader petals.
