Hello Joy,
Sorry, I can't help with th ID.
Beautiful photo of this splendid flower in excellent sharpness and details. I think I should have cropped a piece of the darker left side of the photo to get more attention on the flowers in the light. Nice blurred background.

Namaste Joydeb da

I believe this is the Caperbush plant, Capparis Spinosa. I saw these flowers first time last winter and interestingly the buds of these flowers are used as seasoning.

This is the flower of Capparis zeylanica or Ceylon caper.
