net says and flowers of india too that its native of ne india manipur
so is this planted in garden or did you find in roadside etc ie naturalised/escaped from garden/plantation?
net also says useful in throat infections..
diphtheria? mucolytic and or antibacterial properties... does someone know it?

No, this is growing wild.
so a manipur plant naturalised in the western ghats

The spinous Meyna laxiflora forms dense thickets in some portions of the hill in Madh. 
The corolla lobes of the tiny flowers deflex almost immediately after unfurling in the morning. The corolla is usually five-lobed but it is not entirely uncommon to encounter a six- or a seven-lobed flower (have attached an instance of the latter).
I've noticed that the fruits are suspended from the twigs in two distinct ways. Either the stalk is completely exposed with the fruit hanging straight down [5th pic] or the stalks are coiled around the twigs in which case the fruits may appear deceptively sessile from a distance [6th pic]. There is a healthy population of pigs in the area and these animals polish off the fallen fruits in no time. In some published accounts, the fruit is said to be "yellow" / "yellowish" when ripe but I haven't come across such coloration anywhere so far.
This, in my opinion, is the finest (until it lasts) population of Meyna laxiflora in Mumbai.
Photographed on Madh Hill (North Mumbai), the flowers in February and the fruits in March 2015.
Excellent details ...
very nice. does the coiling of the fruit stem occur in the same tree or different trees? different expression of the same genes?  if so, then,and why?

Thanks for your comments in all my posts. The fruiting pictures are from separate trees and there are plenty of these in the area. I have no clue about what might be prompting that quirky mannerism in the fruit stalks.
may be some infection? something is eating them up?

Please could you help with ID of this Rubiaceae member? Pictures were taken at Kasara, Maharashtra on July 2016. 
Unfortunately I missed taking a habit shot of the plant, it seemed to be a big shrub/small tree.
Liked the 2nd one most.
Looks like Meyna laxiflora Robyns [Rubiaceae] to me.

Found in another dry forest nearby vandalur forest.
Interesting geometry:
The four dots like square corner in a circle at bottom of fruit.

The fruiting plant is Meyna laxiflora.

A small tree. Thorny. Clusters of flowers green coloured of size of less than a cm. Is it Meyna laxiflora?

Affirmative ... This is Meyna laxiflora [previously Vangueria spinosa]. Some of my photographs of this are available at these links
Will send some more photographs later.
My apologies. Could not find any photographs of the flowers of Meyna laxiflora. Only these.
