Just to share some memories...
Shantiniketan (West Bengal) campus has an avenue along the mangoe orchard lined with Millingtonia hortensis. It was Tagore's favourite tree/flower. I still remember from my school days there, the fragrance-filled air, but never noticed any pods - not that i was conscious of nature so minutely. And I remember cork trees often being the first victims of storms in my childhood days in North Indian cantonements.
