Hi Suranga,

welcome to this list and to Python!

I think you have found one of the very best resources for learning 
Python, so you are off to a good start. The way to use this list best, 
in my opinion, is to post specific questions. Questions with some code 
are even better. (It is hard for people to know what would help you 
without seeing what you don't understand.)

The people who do a lot of answering here are very patient -- they've 
put up with all sorts of questions from me :-)

One tutorial I think you might find useful is 
<http://www.ibiblio.org/obp/thinkCSpy/>. It is aimed at high school 
students, but does not condescend. Why don't you try that from the 
beginning, and when stuck on something, post here asking about it?

Best of luck.

Brian vdB
