I think this is a species of Fittonia though I’m not sure which. Here’s the wiki page.

For me also this one looks like Fittonia species. More likely Fittonia verschaffeltii of Acanthaceae;
common names: Mosaic Plant, Nerve Plant, Painted Net Leaf
Origin: Peru

Attached are pictures of Fittonia albivenis captured at Lonavala in October 2013.
Requested to validate the ID.
