Looking for ID this bird

Mysore, India(Zone 10a)

Hi everyone... hoping all of you are safe. We are safe, going through lockdown, one week over, still two to go.... at the outset.

This morning, I happened to see this bird and luckily it gave me time to bring out the camera and take this lone shot. Had never seen it before in my locality/area, Mysuru, India. Tried looking up in Birds of India that I have. Unable to get a proper match. So I turn to my friends here for help. Golden Orioles fly by occasionally but this is not the one.

Hello. This is a old post, so, I'm guessing you got your answer elsewhere. But, just in case you didn't, I think that bird is called a Black-naped oriole. In Massachusetts where I live, we get Baltimore Orioles and, occasionally, Orchard Orioles and your post intrigued me enough to search. This looks to me like what you photographed https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black-naped_oriole
