I think this is a Rauwolfia plant in fruiting phase.
Would appreciate the ID.
Observed in Oct 05 near Pune


One more picture with leaves.


Not Rauwolfia for sure!!!


The caterpillar is of Atlas Moth 🙂


I think this represents Cipadessa baccifera of Meliaceae. I know all indian species of Rauvolfia and none of them having such leaves (compound leaves).
Hope this may provide you some clue.
