While the flower in Thiru's pix and the flowersofIndia
pix are similar, only colour being different, the leaves seem to be totally at variance from each pix. Can anyone offer any explanations ?

Yes, this looks like what I understand to be Androsace rotundifolia.  Please note this is an exceedingly variable plant with several varieties having been recognised in the past.  Nasir in Primulaceae (Flora of Pakistan) recognised two subspecies: rotundifolia & glandulosa, whilst var. thomsonii he elevated to a separate species (which is found in Ladakh, Baltistan and other parts of N.Pakistan near Tibetan border. 

Stewart found the species to be everywhere in Kashmir from 1500-3000m.  Flowers of the Himalaya say open slopes, very common in W.Himalaya.  Collet found it on rocks & banks at Shimla & Mushobra.
