Thanks Bob,

You solution helps, but now I am unable now to use BarLabels !

I can't use FrameTicks in place of BarLabels, since FrameTicks do not get 
positioned at the same locations as BarLabels.  Using Frame seems to prevent 
BarLabels from showing up:

BarChart[{1, 2, 3}, Frame -> True, BarLabels -> {0, 1, 2},
  FrameTicks -> {None, Range[0, 3], None, None},
  FrameLabel -> (Style[#1, FontSize -> 14] & ) /@ {"x-axis label", "y-axis 
label"}]

For example, If I replace frameTicks for the x-axis with what I wanted to be 
the BarLabels, I get this

BarChart[{1, 2, 3}, Frame -> True, FrameTicks -> {{0, 1, 2}, Range[0, 3], 
None, None},
  FrameLabel -> (Style[#1, FontSize -> 14] & ) /@ {"x-axis label", "y-axis 
label"}]

and nothing I did would make FrameTicks {0,1,2} to be placed right where the 
earlier frameTicks {1,2,3} were.

ofcourse I can use BarLabels without the FrameTicks, but then we are back to 
square one, the BarLabels would now show in the top and bottom:

BarChart[{1, 2, 3}, Frame -> True, BarLabels -> {0, 1, 2},
  FrameLabel -> (Style[#1, FontSize -> 14] & ) /@ {"x-axis label", "y-axis 
label"}]
