It doesn't look like Talinum fruticosum. This might be a plant that belong to the family Gentianaceae

Good morning Tabish Sir and Giby Sir

It's very strange that both of your mails failed to reach my inbox. Just found your replies in the eflora site itself.

Will search the net this evening using your clues.

Regards,

surajit

This can be Centaurium pulchellum I think...
