Is it some species of Oxalis? Growing in water?
Without flowers, I cannot ID this, but there is some bright spot in the centre.

this one is again a gugly for you.
This is a Marsilea sp. Perhaps M. quadrifolia. An aquatic fern. Often taken as a vegetable. A non-flowering plant produces sporocarp.
Well it sometimes takes a long time for later research work to become generally known. First M. quadrifolia does NOT occur in India (apart from some cultures in Universities etc.) – it is mainly a European species, as has been known now since two or three decades. It is distinguished quite easily by the sorocarps arising from a short way up the leaf pedicel, not in the axil where the pedicell meets the basal stem as in Indian species.
