Dear HS ... many many thanks for posing doubts.



Here are references for ... Chinese Box:
ENVIS - FRLHT : http://envis.frlht.org/plant_details.php?disp_id=1477
Wikipedia : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murraya_paniculata

For more references, please feed the following words ... Murraya paniculata Chinese Box .. into search box of Google.

But what OR why Chinese Box ?
Most probably this is the trade name used by the wood industry.



Here are references for ... જાસવંતી jaswanti
Trees of Gujarat: http://gujtrees.com/List.php
AND also found in a publication of Gujarat Ecological Education and Research ( GEER ) Foundation with the name ગુજરાતનાં ઔષધિય વનસ્પતિઓ

This name in some languages reminds us of the shoeflower, Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, in Gujarati dictionary, found they call it જાસુદી jasudi.



Regards.
Dinesh
