Jayaram ji,
Section 1.7 -- contains a small description on functions and programs.
Section 2.6 -- goes through modularity and a short indroduction to
Packages. You probably want to make a package rather than evaluate a whole
notebook when you open it. But you can do this by setting the property of
each cell to that of an Initialisation Cell. In the menu bar look under
Cell->Cell Propeties.
Section 2.12 -- shows you how to communicate with other programs.

It is all in the book and it is also available on-line under help. There
are plenty of examples. And there is a book by Roman Maeder called
Programming In Mathhematica. You can find the table of contents of this
book under Help->AddOns->Extras->Programming in Mathematica. All the
packages from this book can be found under
where, $PATH_TO_MATHEMATICA can be
/usr/local/bin  (Unix, Linux etc)
/Applications  (Macs)

Best Regards
