Tanay ji, Nice capture.  This tree is rare in Mumbai.   I have seen one tree in the Victoria Gardens, Byculla, Mumbai.
Thanks for sharing.
Regards,
Mani.

I saw a magnificent specimen at the Howrah Bot Gardens in 1978 but could not find the tree despite searching avidly in 1989.
It was in full bloom in Feb, standing at the edge of a bank with its flower-laden branches sweeping down, almost to the water
. Truly a memorable sight!

but looks more gorgeous in real than in photos
