Dear Friends
Please find attached  4 photos of the same  plant growing in my backyard at Suchindrum. It is erect and the stem has become woody. Very sturdy. Is it some kind of Euphorbia sp.?
Thanks in advance
best wishes

This is the 'multi-vitamin plant' Sauropus androgynous belonging Euphorbiaceae (so you are partly correct!) family.

Dear Geethaji,
The shrub can be confirmed as Sauropus androgynus (L.) Merr. of Euphorbiaceae. 
In a short glance, this can be overlooked for Phyllanthus sp.
