Dear Yazdy ji,
This could be Desmodium triflorum?

There is a slight difference between the two pictures.

If it is Desmodium triflorum, then the picture shown in the flicker
picture copied by me in the last mail has to be different. Though the
leaves are the same, there is a difference between the two flowers
(slight difference) the beans are also different to the extent that
one has hairy substance whereas the beans or pods in my picture posted
today does not.
This though is the observation of a layperson.
Regards
Yazdy.
