Dr. Ajay Pradhan this bird my lens captured is The Jungle Babbler, Turdoides striata, a gregarious bird found mostly in South-Asia .
An interesting feature about this bird is that it usually forages in a group of 6-7 birds and hence has acquired its Hindi nickname 'SaatBhai' or 7 brothers....
My observation is that its grey-brown body helps it camouflage in the urban surroundings and the trees but its noisy habit of mewing calls, continual chattering, squeaking and chirping keeps it from being inconspicuous...
