Attached pictures of leaves, pods, trunk & dried tree(which actually attracted my attention as it was totally leafless & full of dried pods, simmering in the light, along the bank of a smallish perennial pond) taken at Botanical Gardens, Shibpur, Howrah (Kolkata) on 12/1/08. To me it appeared that it is dried up & on the verge of death. But a few labourers working there pointed out that it is very much alive (How is this happen? as I saw another tree which had both green leaves as well as dry pods). Pods appear quite similar to Shisham ( Dalbergia sissoo).
Is it Dalbergia Lanceolaria (Takoli/ Sirsa/ Bithua)?

Hi Mr.Garg,
It is Dalbergia lanceolaria locally called Phanshi
[around Bombay].
Regards,
Neil.
