This is also a common spring weed in Morni Hills...

Androsace umbellata (Lour.) Merrill in Philipp. Sc. 15:239. 1919.
Syn: Androsace saxifragifolia Bunge; A. patens Wright
Thanks to this episode I could identify this distinct annual species rarely ascending above 1400 m in India.
The plant has long petioled ovate-cordate leaves, white flowers in umbel, entire calyx lobes, corolla slightly longer than calyx, lobes oblong to obovate, almost entire at tip; capsule globose.
Photographed from Morni hills in Haryana in April.

Androsace umbellata from Himachal [Mandi; 900 m asl]
Beautiful upload along with many others.
Great documentation about Himalayan flora.
Androsace is distinguished from Primula by its smaller flowers usually less than 1.3 cm across, and its short corolla tube shorter than calyx which is narrowed and thickened at the mouth; style short.
Many sp. are mat or cushion forming. 22 ssp in Himalaya

Sharing some pictures for ID shot at Chitwan National Park , Nepal on 13 january 2013 at 600 ft.
I hope Androsace umbellata.
Thank you for ID. Androsace umbellata (Lour.) Merr. (accepted name)
... must be correct - this is the only Androsace found at such low elevations. In Nepal recorded from 270-1500m (so this if altitude correct, is even lower). Stewart described it as our only plains species of the genus for Pakistan & Kashmir. Nasir in Primulaceae of Pakistan spoke of the only spring annual. Usually found as an undergrowth in shady places or near streams, ditches or moist embankments.
