Kindly see Ixora polyantha Wight, captured from Kerala forests.
Thank you very much Sir.
But leaves, appear to me, differ from http://www.iiim.res.in/herbarium/rubiaceae/ixora_polyantha.htm and http://www.europeana.eu/portal/record/11614/F3249D0AE1A48B511A3E2B1565D921876C4BBB84.html.

There are a lot of variations in leaf shapes in Ixora polyantha. Consider them as individual variations among populations.

Ixora polyantha Wight of Rubiaceae family from our farm. A small shrub prefer to grow under shade.
The flower pictures are shot in the night just half an hour before as the flower opens in the night by around 8 O'clock.
Very fragrant in the night.
I should check the same day time tomorrow.
