I also think this is Luffa aegyptiaca we call it "duhdrul" in Bengali
the dried fruits are used as a body scrubber. 
Luffa aegyptiaca Mill. is now correctly known as L. cylindrica (L.) M. Roem.
It is the commonest Ghia Tori grown in tropics, the smooth gourd, Dhundal in Beng, Ghosali in Mar., 
L. acutangula L, usually grown in cold climates and having fruit with strong ridges, the ridged gourd or ribbed gourd, kali tori in Hindi, Jhinga in Beng., Shirola in Mar.. 
Only fruit (young or old) can help in final confirmation, as leaves look similar in two. Latter generally has lighter yellow flowers, which I see here.

Cucurbitaceae week: Luffa & Insecta from Hooghly: I recorded these photos in November & December, last year. At that time i was more drawn to fauna and have had no knowledge about flora. I didn't pay attention to host / visiting plants those fauna members were attached with.
Here are a few of my photo-shots, each displaying one or more insect member on Luffa sp.
I think these flowers are of Luffa aegyptiaca Mill.

A climber with fruits like Luffa, but I cannot see the leaves.  Id is requested. 
I hope bottle gourd, Lagenaria siceraria

A gourd seen at the flower show in Jijamata Udyan, Mumbai on 18/2/2011.
Snake Gourd?
This one looks like Luffa cylindrica (L.) M. Roemer.
Thanks for this id too.
I was confused between Luffa cylindrica and Trichosanthes cucumerina, although I seem to know both.
I have four Trichosanthes-
You may note your pic also features L. acutangula, in the background at right hand side.
Thanks for the feedback and additional information.
So I take this as Luffa cylindrica as final?
Please wait for experts' views.

Hooghly yesterday : Luffa aegyptiaca Mill. :  Attachments (5). 5 posts by 3 authors.
It is DHUNDUL in Bengali, Luffa aegyptiaca Mill. in "Bengal Plants".
Dr. Prain equates it with three species of Flora Indica - 1) L. pentandra, 2) L. clavata, and 3) L. racemosa.
This one is cultivated variety, eaten in curry.
I have earlier posts featuring wild variety, bitter tasted. But, sometimes this cultivated var. also escapes in the wild.
In Kannada it is known as 'Thuppada eere kai'
JHINGA (L. acutangula) or DHUNDUL (L. aegyptiaca) with POSTO (poppy seeds) is a delicacy, as can be seen in a recipe page - http://www.bongcookbook.com/2009/01/jhinge-chingri-posto.html
Thank you Sir, it is pleasant to know that it is cultivated in South too.

Wild luffa! : 5 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (2)- 3 mb each. 
This is wild luffa. It is far more bitter than a bitter gourd and Neem. People use small quantity of it to reduce blood pressure and blood sugar. 
I am wondering if it is wild variety of L. cylindrica or it is separate species. It is not ridged like Luffa acutangula
Thank you for your kind cooperation!
Yes it's a wild variety of cylindrica ..., it's soo bitter,
Appears to be Luffa cylindrica (L.) M.Roem only as per details at Luffa
Thank you for your thoughts and help. 
Yes, it is wild and bitter varieties of L. cylindrica
