Plz id this wild plant growing at several spots in Yeoor region. It is around 3 to 4 feet height but maybe it might be the sapling of some tree.

This is Dhaman [Grewia tiliaefolia]. My photographs of this are available in the archives of this group.

It can be either Grewia asiatica L. or Grewia tiliifolia Vahl as comparative size of Peduncles vis a vis the petioles is not known as per keys in BSI Flora of India

However from scrubby nature and papery leaves, I will go for Grewia asiatica



Grewia tiliifolia Vahl.
GREW-ee-uh — named for Nehemiah Grew (1641-1712), an English    physician and author
til-ee-eye-FOH-lee-uh — having leaves like the Linden (Tilia) tree

Great photographs !!!! Sending some of my recent photographs to complement yours. My previous photographs are available at this link :

My apologies. Some of the photographs overlapped for some reason.

I think these images may be of Grewia asiatica L. as Peduncles much longer than petioles as per keys in BSI Flora of India

I think there is a mix up of images from four places/ times as per another thread.

I think 1st & 3rd may be of Grewia asiatica L. and others may be of Grewia tiliifolia

Yes, it is G. tiliifolia 

Pl. have a re look as peduncle appears larger than pedicle, which appears very small.

As there are images from three places, I feel 1st image is certainly of Grewia asiatica
