Thecagonium ovatifolium (Cav.) Babu (= Oldenlandia nudicaulis Roth), Rubiaceae wild herb from Thirutthani area (Thiruvallur DT) of Tamilnadu
Thank you very much …. I hope you meant Thecagonum ovatifolium (Cav.) Babu.
May I humbly suggest to check probability of Oldenlandia pterita (Blume) Miq. (Hedyotis pterita Blume), specially for its 1) winged hypanthium 2) subsessile flowers 3) succulent nature…..

Small herb clicked near Vijaywada, Andhra pradesh May 2015
Habitat was small farm
This could be a species of Hedyotis.
It is Thecagonum pteritum (Blume) Babu, Syn.Oldenlandia pterita (Blume) Miq.,
I think it looks different from Leptopetalum pteritum (Blume) Neupane & N.Wikstr. as per images, details and references herein.
It is Thecagonum pteritum (Blume)Babu Syn. Oldenlandia pterita (Blume)Miq. Syn. Hedyotis pterita Blume of Rubiaceae, a very common weed in A.P.
Thanks, …, But to me it does not matches with images at Leptopetalum pteritum (Blume) Neupane & N.Wikstr.
On further checking, you may be right. But I do not know why it looks somewhat different.
