Kindly help Id this wild herb growing prostrate in Pune
Leaves - green elliptical
could not make out flowers and fruits
I wish if the last picture is focused properly.
I have a suggestion in this regard.
Keep your palm just below the plant/objrct while focusing. Remove the palm after the object is focused but don't remove the focus button once the object is focused, straightaway click after removing your palm.
You get a focused picture.
When you shoot a single object when there are lots of other space in the frame the auto focus in the camera tend to focus the vast area in the frame other than the small object, unless you proffered for single point (center) focus. But unfortunately this wont work in auto mode of most of the compact and point ant shoot cameras. You have to use manual/shutter/aperture mode to prefer focus point.
If you always use auto mode then you try practice the aforementioned method it works.
Few suggestions for consideration for the plant in the picture Chamaesyce thymifolia, C. hypericifolia and Euphorbia prostrata.
Further, I think you forgot to reduce the file size.
Thank you for your kind guidance to capture better focused images.
Actually so far I have been using my N95 cell phone which has a 5 megapixel camera to capture images. In the past I have managed to get excellent videos for our hospital and clinic staff training from this camera. But as you have pointed out I am not able to get good photos and sometimes out of focus pictures of plants. Today I have used a better camera to capture images of the same plant and got some better images. Attaching the pictures of the same
Looking at these pictures does it favor the plant being Chamaesyce thymifolia as suggested by you. Also the plant was not completely prostrate .
I can't believe that you were/are using a mobile camera to capture these pictures.
I was thinking of a compact digital camera.
It is a great effort and thanks goes to N95 as well for showing us such wonderful pictures.
Your pictures were clearly showing characters of plants.
Now, I think Chamaesyce thymifolia is a possible id.
I think ... would validate the id.
I think ... plant looks more like Euphorbia prostrata (syn. Chamaesyce prostrata), based on appearance of the fruits.
Referring to ... post at

... and others may please validate.
Chamaesyce thymifolia for me.

Euphorbia Herb For ID : Nasik : 10OCT16 : AK-13 : 10 posts by 5 authors. Attachments (2)
Photographed this tiny herb near a lake in July,15.
Seems to be Euphorbia Species.

A rough location?  Altitude?
This tiny herb was seen near the Gangapur Dam & Grasslands in Nasik, Maharashtra.
It was in the grasslands.
I have no idea about the altitude of the Dam, but Nasik town is close to 2,300 feet.
I was trying to photograph another herb.
While going through my pictures later, came across this tiny Euphorbia, which was not noticed before.
Sending the original picture clicked.
Thanks for providing infromation.  This part of India and elevation is beyond my knowledge, so cannot be of any help.  Too much outstanding re: Himalayan flora.
General location and approx. altitude are always so important when attempting to identify a plant - it narrows down the possibilities.
This is definitely not E. hypericifolia.
This is either Euphorbia thymifolia or E. prostrata.
To distinguish the two, you need to see an enlarged image of the capsules.
In E. thymifolia the capsules are hairy throughout. Whereas in E. prostrata the capsules are ciliate-hairy along the keels only and glabrous on the body. The photograph do not show the capsules clearly.
In such prostrate herbs, it would be better if you place a white paper below the plant before clicking the photo.. 
Thank you for the two suggested ids and their distinguishing differences. I will take more pictures when I revisit the place.
