There is a clump of these bushes about half-way up to Triund. I have been meaning to confirm its identity for some time but didn’t get around to do so. Is it Wikstroemia canescens? Please advise.

Hindi names of Wikstroemia canescens : 7 posts by 3 authors.
Following names chambai, chambat, chamliya, padaren, tilak ... are compiled at ENVIS – FRLHT for Wikstroemia canescens.
I cannot visualize padaren while tilak I assume is तिलक
My attempt at putting others in Devanagari script: चम्बई (or चंबई), चम्बट (or चंबट), चमलिया … these or their variants in Devanagari, are not found on internet.
Those familiar with these names, please help.
Can padaren be an Urdu word ?
May not be, … Could be some local dialect of Himachal or Uttarakhand.
… or could be borrowed from Kashmiri.
Both ways chambak, and chambeli can be written either half m or a dot at the top.
Thanks … I meant to say that none of these चम्बई / चंबई / चम्बट / चंबट / चमलिया yield any result in Google search, thus was not confident whether these are valid.

Please suggest id of this shrub which was shot from Shillong-Cherrapunji route, Meghalaya during my recent tour to the place.
I think this belongs to Thymelaeaceae. Can this be an Edgeworthia sp.? or a Gnidia
Looks more close to Edgeworthia gardneri.
I tried yesterday night, but was not convinced. So decided not to say anything.
Kindly also check Wikstroemia canascens, Thymeleaceae
Thanks …, but this is not Wikstroemeria canescens…!!
Not quite convincing to me …, having seen Wikstroemia canescens at various places.. let’s hope for some more inputs..!!
I guess Wikstroemia canescens Meisn.
