I am very sorry, I have difficulties to differentiate one tree from another and have no clue about their names.

Time is fast. :)

I know this one Austy....lovely isn't it? My first brush with it was in Theosophical Society in Chennai as a kid...that place with so many trees seemed so magical to me...thanks for posting this...brings back fond memories to me :-)

And coming back to the tree, the flowers are called Nagalingam flowers locally in Chennai...check this out - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1azHbQRPCRo

Guess Cannon ball tree is more common.
