I've loved nature since I was a young child back in the 70's, be it birds, insects, mammals or plants...!

Birds of the World
I agree with ForestDragon it's the Banded Sphinx Moth (Eumorpha fasciatus)...! http://bugguide.net/node/view/597408
Although the photo on wikipedia doesn't match in the purple colour other photos I've seen do match in colour the colour varies but the gills do match...!
Could be Rubus ursinus a species of blackberry known by the common name California blackberry...! Although native to Western North America it is wide-spread...!
I'm not 100% sure but I think it's a Lychee Stink Bug Nymph and after a few more hours the white parts will turn red...!
It looks like a type of Chafer Beetle I had lot's of them eating all my fruit of the trees when I lived in Johannesburg...!
I think it's a type of Mason Wasp of the Family: Vespidae Subfamily: Eumeninae but I'm not sure which one...!
Maybe Arijit I'm no birds of India expert, but of all the photos I've looked at a few of the ones of the Yellow-bellied Warbler matched this one...!
Your welcome...! I've look at many photos of the Ashy Wren-warbler they all look a little different to each other but a few did match the one in your photo...!
Maybe some type of Mason Wasp but not sure...!
Again I'm not sure but suggest it's a Yellow-bellied Warbler (female)...!
