This happens with me when the connection is slower. Any way your plant is Geranium lucidum, characterised by shinning 5-7 lobed leaves, angular calyx and pink flowers.
Thank you Sir, Gratified for your help... I thought it was Geranium... but could not find which one.. since neither 'Flowers of India' or Flowers of the Himalayas had any reference...
This looks correct - cannot really be anything else. 
Stewart recorded it as common in the Murree Hills, Pakistan from 650-1800m in N.Pakistan and parts of Kashmir through to Kishtwar. Collet found it common on old walls at Shimla - where one would imagine, it still is. Recorded from West Nepal but not further east.
Known as the 'Shining Cranesbill' in the UK where it grows on shady rocks, walls and hedgebanks, a calciole.

Geranium lucidum L. from Naini Tal.
A small wild herb on steep slopes or old stone walls in the area.
It is exclusively temperate Himalayan species in India.
Plants are tiny reaching only up to 20 cm in the area.
Yes ... Shining leaves and pale pink flowers are quite distinctive. Thanks for upload
Nice photograph ... Leaves are apparently looking like cilantro/coriander leaves.
