Hi Bala,

First of all let me make it clear to you that Silverlight is not a programming language. Silverlight is a framework for developing web based applications with rich UI elements. Silverlight is a subset of Windows Presentation framework(WPF)that enables the user to develop Rich internet applications, interactive media elements and mobile apps which is downloaded as a plugin on the browser.

You can program Silverlight applications with your conventional programming languages like c# or To understand the concepts of Silverlight you basically have to undestand xaml which is the designer part of Silverlight where most of the differences lies b/w an ASP.NET or a forms application and a Silverlight application.

If you are familiar with WPF then Silverlight will be easy and nothing more than an extension of WPF.

You also need to be clear about which version of Silverlight you are working on. Because features available in some of the latest versions are not available in older versions.Having said that any version of Silverlight would be good enough to get your basics right.

Hope this helps.

Happy coding!!
