Hmmm, on a second thought, it might be a Long-tailed blue even ! :D

Thanks AshishNimkar. Yes, it is kinda small. Made a few approached to it before can get a few shots. A bit shy, slight movement can cause them to fly away. Thank you for providing me the name of this butterfly family.

Great work...
Lycaenidae family of butterflies are challenging to spot... their wings are smaller than out toe's nails.
