This flower is known as Parijatak locally. As usual; I am too lazy to find out its scientific name etc...

These flowers bloom early in the morning and by 7:00 -7:30 am; they wilt and start hitting the ground. Mildly fragrant, if you are lucky enough to pass by the tree early morning, its fragrance and simple beauty will stay with you for the rest of the day... :)

This lone one stayed on the tree and I took this picture around at 7:00 AM.

One of the friends lets know the scientific name mean while and here it is for you guys as well, 'Nyctanthes Arbortristics...' I would never be able to remember that! ;)
