hi Amitindurkar
<BODY id="mpBodyTag" runat="server"/>
from codebehind
in master page codebehind
mpBodyTag.Attributes.Add("style","background: ... ");
in masterpage codebehind
public HtmlGenericControl BodyTag
get{return mpBodyTag;}
set{mpBodyTag= value;}

in child page
Master.BodyTag.Attributes.Add("style","background: ... ");
