It looks like Laportea interrupta from the Nettle family.

I have doubts for this to be Laportea interrupta!

I think ..... may be right. Please check the link
http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Hen%27s%20Nettle.html

The distinct 3-nerved leaves (L.interrupta) are absent here in the plant I posted. In addition, the leaves are smaller (3 X 2 cm) here when compared to the L.interrupta.  Any other clue to this small herb?
