Requesting to please ID this tree/climber captured near Devgad, Maharashtra in May 2014.
I was told the fruits are called 'shengati' or 'shengti' in Marathi. 
This is a species of Capparis possibly C.moonii
My photographs of an allied species C.zeylanica for comparison are available at these links: 
Agree with ... Capparis moonii Wight
Acuminate, (also a short tailed) tipped, shining leaves, and long gynophore are significant in this species.
My photographs of the flowers of Capparis moonii are available at this link:

Requesting to please ID this climbers growing wild by the roadside in Aguada, Goa in May 2014.
The pictures of the flowers and fruits have been clicked at different places although they being situated very close to each other (maybe 10-15 metres away).
Are both these sets Capparis moonii?
I had posted pics of Capparis moonii a few days ago (identified by ...- efi thread) which seem to match the fruit pics here.
The last 3 photographs are of C.moonii, the first 3 are of a different climber.
