labelled or if they are,the labels are non-readable..pic taken

Hi Rajini,
   In the first photograph the main leaves seen are those of Palas [Butea monosperma / "Flame of the Forest'] but there are also a few leaves of Pipal [Ficus religiosa] seen. So my guess would be a Pipal tree growing as a strangler on a Palas tree.
                                   Regards,
                                     Neil.
