I thought this could be Lindernia sp. Mazus is supposed to have long stalk.

Yes Lindernia (leaves not rosetted at base, all opposite, and flowers axillary; calyx is not visible to comment).

Probably L. crustacea

Lindernia crustacea ... commonly known as: brittle false pimpernel, Malaysian false pimpernel ... strangely, though a native, not much discussed with regards to its names in various regions of India ... a lone name appears in ENVIS - FRLHT for Malayalam -- katu-pee-tsjanga-puspam
