I think Cyanotis cristata (L.) D.Don as per images and details herein.
Looks different from images at Cyanotis burmanniana Wight

Please check the collage, dear Garg ji.
First is C. cristata as per efi
Second is C. burmanniana in Efi
Third is the said, mine, very close to C.burmanniana and only difference is hairless, with kind regards, Sam

Dear Garg ji,
I am sure, it is not C. cristata. Flower of C. cristata closed around morning 10.00am and flower of said plant closed around 01.00pm.  Never visible weak stamen hairs and clear pink petals in C. cristata like 4th image in the second post and 1st image in the 3rd post.  With kind regards, Sam.

Dear Garg ji and Mayur ji,
I am not sure it is Cyanotis burmanniana, and it is only my suggestion.  But I am sure, it is not Cynotis cristata, I trying for seed images of both plants, sharing unripened seed image of the said plant, with kind regards, Sam.

Dear Garg ji & Mayur ji,
Please check the below comparison on C. cristata & ID 140 with collage images.
C. cristata.                                   ID 140
                           Appearance:
small 05mm                         big 10mm          diameter                                diameter
                      Flora clossing time:
Around 09.10am.                around 12.30pm
                                Habitat:
common land                       rocky
                     Seeds: lite difference
 Leaves: veins distribution entirely different
no thickness                         01.6mm                                                              thickness
The first (left) is of C. cristata and 2nd (right) is of ID140 in all collages.  As per these differences, I am strictly denied it is C. cristata, with kind regards, Sam.

In the collage #20211023_115502, C.cristata is in the right side, kind regards, Sam.

I think Cyanotis cristata (L.) D.Don only as per images and details herein.
It is quite variable.
Mayur ji may pl. further confirm.
