Ramneek, there is NO need to implement the Runnable interface for an applet. You can make, display and run the applet WITHOUT implementing Runnable interface.
But normally we need to carry on some processing or animation in a separate thread. Thus we want the applet to create and start a thread for that purpose. One way to do that is to make the applet implement the Runnable, and then to construct and start a new Thread using the Runnable applet instance.
