Shrub for id from Solan- 2010 : Attachments (8).  3 posts by 2 authors.
These shots (though not much clear) were recorded from Solan-Shimla road, this was a small tree or a shrub, with creamy white flowers.. perhaps a Rubiaceae member.. please provide id hints..
Another set of excellent photographs. 
I think these images are of Swida oblonga (Wallich) Sojak (= Cornus oblonga Wallich), a small tree having very sporadic occurrence on this route. I have seen some plants of this species along national highway near the boundary of Solan and Shimla districts.
Many thanks again ..., this is a great help...
My mind was revolving near Ixora.. but the corolla tube?.. I was not having any clues.. happy to find conclusion...

Viburnum cylindricum ??? from near Shimla ATJAN2015/07 : 5 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (2)
Is it Viburnum cylindricum ???
Place: Shimla, Solan (H.P.)
23 Sept., 2013
 
I think appears to match with images at Viburnum cylindricum  
To me it does not resemble with V.cylindricum in which corolla lobes are five, very small and erect. In this plant corolla lobes appear 4, large and spreading.
The generic ID may also be rechecked. I am not sure for Viburnum.
I hope this can be Cornus oblonga....
Please see this...
Thank you ...  I hope this to be Cornus oblonga as suggested by you.

I guess the flowering pattern and the seasonality is not matching according to the records.  

Ok
Four petals and two stamens suggest some Oleaceae member.
Oleaceae in eFI.
I could not find a match as per comparative images at Oleaceae in eFI  

Cornus oblonga ???? 

Thank you ...

nice. why the nepali name includes Kaath. does its wood find some uses?
Kath means wood !
I know that. what I asked was- does this have some useful wood
==
is it used for utensils, furniture etc?
The bark contains essential oils and tannins and is used in folk remedies to treat arthritis and injuries and besides this the tree is lopped for fodder. No specific use for furniture since stem is not so thick.
