Yes Vijay ji, it is mahua madhuca longifolia. If you have trees of delhi, it is on page no. 140-141. in delhi, one could see it on southend road.

Dr. Niel, there can't be so much of confusion between mahua and kusum, can you pls throw light on how to differentiate on leaves, fruits and bark among both of these?

Leaves of Mahua and Kusum are a bit similar. Both are broadest towards
the tip. but the design is different. Mahua has leaves at the end of
the branches in dense cluster. while kusum has 2-4 pairs of opposites.
Mahua leaves have stalks; Kusum leaves are stalkless. The Mahua
flowers again are in dense cluster and fruits are in longer stalks.
While Kusum fruits are in short stalks s simialr to the fruits seen
here in the picture.

I've feeling this is not Mahua.

with regards

Abhay
