Tiny grass with red leaves seen in Bangalore growing wild.

I observed these colors in Apluda mutica when young, this will grow in sandy soils,

Great observation.
This grass was observed in the play area of a housing complex, where this part of the play area has sand.
I observed this grass only in a small area.
Have taken more pictures, will add them.

Here are some more pictures taken yesterday.
