Garden flowers seen in Gurgaon on 11/3/2012.
Cultivated, ornamental, potted plants.
The second picture is out of focus, adding it only for the leaves.
Could this be Dyssodia tenuiloba, Dahlberg Daisy as in flowersofindia?
Or Brachycome iberidifolia, the Swan River Daisy?

I hope it is the same as mine still not verified.

Did you check for Dahlberg Daisy on flowersofindia?
Please have a look.

You are great Thymophylla tenuiloba
