Looks like one of the Sauropus  sps.( Euphorbiaceae)
I have Sauropus androgynus (the protein plant) in my house. Your plant has the resemblance to the one I have. Either it could be a different species or an ecological variation. Only experts can decide . Nevertheless, watch out for the flowers and fruits. 

As said by …, I too think this as a different species of Sauropus. Pl follow the given link to see the images of S. androgynous posted by me a few days before. The leaves look very different here.
I request you to pl check with Fl. Assam which I am unable to access here in Korea.

Here are some additional photographs of the species


I think Glochidion ellipticum Wight once again


It is difficult to believe a species of Glochidion by its overall appearence. Thanks for the identity.


It is Glochidion ellipticum
