Thanks Ashish.

I've single CPU machine. I've a feeling that the thread created, which
would run script2, would eat up all of the CPU if I do not use sleep()
in script2.

That way, script1 would still be waiting for script2 to finish. Thus,
my program is no way different from the sample program I posted
earlier.

Is there any other way out?
