Thanks Alok ji

This happens with me when the connection is slower. Any way your plant is Geranium lucidum, characterised by shinning 5-7 lobed leaves, angular calyx and pink flowers.

Thank you Sir,
Gratified for your help... I thought it was Geranium... but could not
find which one.. since neither 'Flowers of India' or Flowers of the
Himalayas had any reference...
Sincere regards
Alok

This looks correct - cannot really be anything else.  Stewart recorded it as common in the Murree Hills, Pakistan from 650-1800m in N.Pakistan
and parts of Kashmir through to Kishtwar.  Collet found it common on old walls at Shimla - where one would imagine, it still is. 

Recorded from West Nepal but not further east.

Known as the 'Shining Cranesbill' in the UK where it grows on shady rocks, walls and hedgebanks, a calciole.
