May I request you to pl. post a few large size clear photos for proper Id.

I am sorry for the poor photographs; photos from Nikon L830 are rendered very bad when resized. Also I cannot send full size photographs to group; so sending separately. Please help me identify with these photographs.

It is a species of Viburnum; probably Viburnum acuminatum as per FPM (since fruit is not there and no close up image I am not sure of species; we have collected it from noth circars, it is rare here, but common in Nilagiri area)
