Thanks a lot dear Saroj ji for the ID suggestion.  I don't know it is Myrsine sp. or not, and no matching flowers at EFI. Very rare, only one plant growing here, with kind regards, Sam.

I agree with Radha ji. 

But could not decide among numerous species listed in FoPI.

Also could not decide from comparative images at

Dear All
The frames in the message belong to Litsea sp. as mentioned by Dr.Radha Veach. Except for the frame with fruits (three) others belong to the male plant. In frame 7421 we could see the flaps of anthers, characteristic of male flowers. In frames No. 7429 and 7440 we can see the inflorescence containing more than one flower of the male Litsea plant.  

Thank you for the opportunity.

With regards
R.Ganesan

Thank you very much dear Saroj ji for the ID.  The flowers are very close, but the inflorescence (one has only on old stem) and pedicle are quite different, please check collage, left is mine.  With kind regards, Sam.
