Dear Arati ji,
The only thing I can suspect seeing this plant that this is from Rubiaceae or allied families the most interesting fact seen from the photo is the stipules are modified into thorns !!

regards
Tanay

Dear Arati Aunty,

It took me a long one hour to keep your request to identify the plant for you. This plant is not at all from Rubiaceae rather it is from Cactaceae commonly known as Rose Cactus or Leaf Cactus scientifically known as Pereskia bleo (Kunth) DC. (Syn: Pereskia corrugate).

Kindly pardon me for late reply and bad hint initially.

 

Regards

Tanay
