Hi, Nudrat ji,
It appears to be Baby's breath (Gypsophila cerastioides). Pl. see the pictures at link: http://images.google.co.in/images?hl=en&q=Gypsophila%20cerastioides&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi

Just to add to J.M. Garg's comment, there is a more familiar Baby's
Breath, Gypsophila elegans, which is native to Europe, commonly used
as filler in flower bouquets.

This Gypsophila cerastioides is native to the Himalayas:
