Probably this mail of mine  is lying in my mailbox. 
Forwarding again for  ID help.


The flower of this plant resemble to that of a white  silk cotton tree in size, shape, color and appearance.
But will such a small plant (around 10 feet)  bear flowers. 
Could this be a kind of cactii ?
.
Regards

-Raghu

Affirmative Raghu. This is a species of Bombax possibly Bombax insigne. Have also seen small trees flowering and fruiting at Shahapur.

Dinesh ji, Pls let me know the height of your flowering plant - if you could remember. I am just curious ..

It is Bombax. Am attaching pictures of a tree that is over 80' as such the thorns are not very visible. The tree in the picture sent by Raghu ji is small and as such the thorns are very clearly visible.
