Opuntia Sp is right. Thank you …. The plants in my garden are the same as this image I found using google

Opuntia Indica Ficus.
The Wikipedia page on this plant: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opuntia_ficus-indica

Could be Opuntia dillenii. 




09052011GS1 Opuntia for ID elatior or dillenii??: Two species of Opuntia are reported from Delhi: O. dillenii and O. elatior. Could this be one of these or any other species

Growing on old Delhi ridge, up to 2.5 m tall with strongly flattened phylloclads, obovate in shape with up to 20 cm long segments; spines 4-7 per ariole, flattened at base, narrowed above tinged yellowish-brown, up to 2.5 cm long. Flowers orange yellow about 5-6 cm across.

I think this is Opuntia dillenii kindly wait for further confirmations.




Opuntia sp. from Hooghly:

This is a common cactus that can be found on roadside and is connected with Devi Manasa.
Species : Opuntia sp., close to Opuntia dilleni (Ker. Grawl.) Haw.
Bengali name : ফণীমনসা (PHONIMONSA)
Habit & Habitat : cactus, approx. 5 feet, roadside, planted, also wild
Date : 12-05-12, 3.36 p.m.
Place : Shibaichandi (Hooghly)
Links on Goddess Manasa :

you have shown us 2 different species
is that your intention?

My goodness, …, i never thought that both were different species! Now, as i see the first pic i understand that they are two different plants growing side by side, i think the one at the right side (with lighter shade of green) is Opuntia dilleni.
