Small Plant for ID : Nasik : 03DEC20 : AK-06
3 images.
Seen on the Gangapur Grasslands, close to the water body.

You should have clicked some clear close-ups of inflorescence,  stem and leaves.

This seems to be a Rush, from the Juncaceae family.

Plants were very small, almost the size of my palm.
There were no visible leaves and the morning dew drops on the plant made it difficult to click clear images.

Adding more pictures.

Yes, looks like your suggested id.

May I request you to send high resolution images.

May be Eleocharis geniculata as per your high resolution images and as per POWO and Ucjeps. But only experts can confirm.

I had clicked more images, but forgot to add them subsequently.
