I think Naveena directed to the post of snonymous which has similarity in the flower but not in the tree. I thank jituyadav & vinobhojak for your inputs but Gulmohar ( yellow ) or Delonix regia or Radhachura ( the yellow version of Krishnachura , the bengali name , means - crown of the Lord Krishna) is distinctly different from this tree. I know Krishnachura from my childhood. The basic difference is Radhachura or yellow Gulomhar has doubly compound pinnate leaves but my mystery tree has simple leaves. I shall try to post the leaf photo for more clue. Another feature to be noted this tree gives flowers only in spring when all the leaves are gone but Gulmohar continues to blossom during the summer and with leaves intact , right?

...it is Sturt's desert pea (Swainsona Formosa). It is used as an ornamental plant in North India. Not sure where you spotted it though ...

In continuation with #33 and as promised I am posting the cuurent condition of the tree( managed to capture it today !).Note that it is actually time for Yellow gulmohar or Radhachura but this one hardly has any petals left! So does this help to identify the tree?

Probably no flowers at all, but just old leaves falling...a tree changing its old attire.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

I think so as a part of the tree has already lost old leaves. Anyways, it does not matter as there is not much one can deduct from these snaps.

The solution is to get hold of the leaves, go to any botany teacher of the nearby collage and you will have the exact answer.

Vaibhav.
Thanks for confirming. it is not my photo. It was spotted by Mousourik in Nimpith Ramkrishna Ashram.

I was courious as it is one of a wildflower in Australia and normally comes up in desert after a rain.

I think I may agree with you.Tabebuia looks perfect.
Now this one is my home grown one.But the name is unknown to me.Planted during my absence by Mom.

Your flower is a native to Kolkata? What time of year does it grow?

I am not sure wthether it's native to Kolkata/ Eastern India. It took almost 6 months to grow up and started blossoming recently. But need to check whether its a all weather one or a spring/summer candidate.But strikingly it has good smell too.As it is in my house, I can post photos of any other detail if you need.
