ID of Kolkata tree_RKC02_020611: Loc.: Victoria memorial campus, Kolkata, W. Bengal.
Date: Feb., 2011.

flowers are very good and scented fruits are edible after they become yellolw/orange. seed teilds oil. bark ash is used in tooth problem. very good tree for avanue,,,,,,,,, 

I had seen this plant in flowering at Itanagar, even I have the foto of flowers. But I could not recognize it in fruiting condition. 'Moulshri' is another name for this plant.

Mimusops elengi, Sapotaceae. There is a very good plantation on road side in Dr. Harisingh Gour Central University campus. The tree provide very good and cool shade in the summer.

Yes, Mimusops elengi....
Victoria memorial grounds has more than 30 of these trees, they all flower at a little different times, and some are still flowering.... the green  fruits are now scarlet red to orangeish red and  a great favorite of birds... and sometimes children... I have tasted them...pulp is sweet-flat-granular, remotely reminds me of white Sapota - or shabeda in local Bengali lingo...
In our informal survey...no bakul tree had been uprooted during Hurricane Aila in calcutta ... in the memorial grounds, lakes and its vicinity and my neighbourhood in Southern calcutta.... Its fruits are eaten by many birds, its flowers are fragrant and nectar food for butterflies and bees and its wood when ready takes on beautiful polish, I am told is somewhat reddish.... Its a value added street tree for urban forestry, gives dense shade , being useful for wild life, is fragrant and is useful medicinally.... in Ayurvedic formulations..
I love this tree among many... In one gujarati Kathiawari dialect its call Bor-salli, some others call it Bol-rasi.... go figure...

Mimusops elengi from Hooghly: This is BAKUL GAACHH in Bengali, very romantically associated with Bengali novels in older days where protagonists offered these flowers or garland to their fiancee and vice versa ! 
..., have you ever heard of that our mother or grannies called their bosom friends as BAKUL. They even pledged that in future, when they would have children they would surely be in laws with each other!

Flora of Delhi: Mimusops elengi from IIPA Campus New Delhi: Returned back from 3 Days Training on Disaster Management from National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM) IIPA Campus New Delhi. Could find some plants in flowering stage There Sharing Mimusops elengi A medium size tree with flowers and fruits
something is puzzling me about this plant... there are a lot of mimusops in Chandigarh... while some are almost every year laden with fruits some i have never seen bearing any fruits though they are mature enough to bear fruits.... is there anything i dont know about this plant which can help me solve this....???
Mimusops elengi (Family: Sapotaceae).
The flowers have a sweet fragrance. This tree is commonly called elengi in Malayalam too.
I have heard people saying (not botanists but lay persons) that there are two types of elengi, those which flowers and those which fruits.
Have always wondered what this means but hasn't been able to solve this puzzle.
Mazhilam poo in Tamil and ranjal in kannada.
The flowers are collected and made into garlands in Chennai and offered to God.. Sold outside the Shiva temples. Fruits edible.
 
Bakkal flower:  What is a bakkal flower. I think it is a persian name.
I found it only on two pages in google as truly a flower... otherwise its someones ' name etc
Both cases it is used in connection to Sai baba if Sirdi... you better ask them...
it must be local vernacular name for a scented flower..
I imagined that it could be a marathi name since Saibaba lived in Shirdi. Then I also thought the spelling could be slightly different. Then I searched in flowers names in Marathi and got it as Bakul thorough Google. Then it was easy.

There are 83 names of different plants mentioned by Tagore in his songs. BAKUL (Mimusops elengi)
is mentioned in 69 songs. Bakul is known as MAULSARI in Hindi. I have posted all those 69 songs printed on the images of BAKUL, to those who understand and can read Bangla. It was a suggestion from Prof. Lalithamba Avadhanam if the translated version is uploaded for the benefit of those who can not read and understand Bangla. My friend Prof. B N Ray has translated 16 songs by Tagore where Bakul has a mention, on my request. Attaching the image bearing the first song of the series.
very nice but cant read the lines on the flowers
from now on can you please put the lines separately
