Date: 28th December 2014
Place: Someshwara Wildlife Sanctuary
Habit: Short tree
I am not sure if what I have photographed are flowers or dehisced fruits.
Either way, they were sweetly scented and came away from the stalk very easily. 

Could this be Chionanthus mala-elengi ??
Thank you very much sir.
So looking at the photos in this- http://biotik.org/india/species/c/chiomala/chiomala_en.html, I have photographed flowers. Couldn't be sure of it earlier.
Family: Oleaceae
Yes, thank you sir.
