Hi kumar,

Jesse James Garrett at Adaptive Path defined Ajax as follows:

Ajax isn't a technology. It's really several technologies, each flourishing in its own right, coming together in powerful new ways. Ajax incorporates:

1. Standards-based presentation using XHTML and CSS
2. Dynamic display and interaction using the Document Object Model
3. Asynchronous server communication using XMLHttpRequest
4. JavaScript binding everything together
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
