Dear Sir,

Thanks. I could change the quickstart api.py slightly. I ran your suggestion
on it. Some result seems coming but I may have to improve some portion, I am not getting. Please see the same.

>>> import requests
>>> url='http://127.0.0.1:5000/toworks/post'
>>> files = {'file': open('C:\Python27\NEWS.txt', 'rb')}
>>> r = requests.post(url, files=files)
>>> r.text
u'{\n    "message": "Method Not Allowed", \n    "status": 405\n}\n'
>>> 

Regards,
