Be watchful as you go to buy books on X-windows programming. Books
with that title will probably contain Xlib and Motif programming.
Motif is an old GUI toolkit for X. However, during the past few years
a lot of better toolkits have been created, namely Gtk+ and Qt. Most
of the linux software currently is written with either of these two
toolkits. Programs like xmms and GIMP are written using Gtk+, while
Opera and Licq are written using Qt. Take your pick.
For Gtk+, there is an Indian edition available for a book "Learn Gtk+
programming in 21 days". Although I normally detest the books which
claim to teach you a skill in a short timeframe, this book is well
written (more importantly, written by an open-source zealot :). I
will recommend this book to you.
For Qt, I cannot remember any Indian edition book. However, there is
a lot of online help from http://www.kde.org and other sites.
Hope this helps,
