Please help me to identify this Capparis sp. I think this is not C. spinosa.
Date: 17 April 2011
Location: Coimbatore dist.; foothills of Velliangiri
Alt: c 400 metres
Habit: wild shrub
Leaf: 3 x 2.5 cm
Flower: white; 5-6 cm across

This is Mastodi [Capparis sepiaria]. 
... have not seen such large white ¿ petal ? structure in Capparis sepiaria ... though the leaves look similar.
Some photos of Capparis sepiaria in my flickr photostream ...

Yes this does not look like C. sepiaria as the flower are much larger.
i feel the stamens are much more than than in C. sepiaria
Thank you for your comments. Sending you one of my photogrpahs of Capparis sepiaria [Mastodi] for comparison. 
... as per my belief, Capparis sepiaria [Mastodi].jpg is not Capparis sepiaria ... have not seen this yet.
Eager to know about this one; as well ready to stand corrected. 
This photograph was taken at the start of the Tulsi road in the Borivali N.P. 
the plant posted by you looks like C. zeylanica.
the stamens are white initially, whcih turns to deep pink in older stage. 
Agreeing with ..., this Capparis sepiaria [Mastodi].jpg almost looks like C. zeylanica (which of course you are well aware of). 
..... photo is Capparis zeylanica
 
I guess photo posted for id is Capparis spinosa 
It is Capparis grandiflora Wall.ex.Hook.f. & Thoms.
