Hi sunilraja562,

Python is a very simple language to learn for beginner programmers. It is a high-level, interpreted, interactive and object oriented-scripting language.
It is easy to learn, easy to read, extendable, portable, interactive mode. It supports both Functional or Structured Programming as well as Object Oriented Programming language.
Python supports the developement of wide range of applications, from simple text processing to WWW browsers to games.

You can learn in detail about python from Python Tutorial and http://www.sthurlow.com/python this site.
These sites gives you the complete study of python from the very basic . It also includes the practical examples of the python programs.

You dont need knowledge of any other programming language for learning python... its so much like english that it takes you mind away from the syntax mess and lets you focus on logic..
