Hi Hiren,

Ajax is a great way to use JavaScript to communicate with the WebServer without refreshing the Page.

In simple terms when you only want to refresh only part of a page rather than posting back the whole page to 
the server in that case AJAX Provides many ways and many controls to do it.It is Asynchronous Communication.

see this link to know more about AJAX

Whereas Silverlight is a plugin powered by the .Net Framework for creating interactive user experiences for developing 
web, desktop and mobile applications.

You might have heard about Flash, Silverlight is similar to that(Microsoft Product)
Silverlight has got many more features compared to Flash which many designers and developers always wanted to have

AJAX = Asynchronous JavaScript and XML.

AJAX is not a new programming language, but a new way to use existing standards.

AJAX is the art of exchanging data with a server, and update parts of a web page - without reloading the whole page.

AJAX,

AJAX, short for Asynchronous JavaScript And XML, isn't a technology but rather a grouping of technologies. AJAX uses a communication technology (typically SOAP and XML) to send and receive an asynchronous request/response to the server, and then leverages presentation technologies (JavaScript, DOM, HTML, and CSS) to process the response. Applications using AJAX are legitimate today, because most browsers support the necessary technology. For a more detailed definition of AJAX, visit the AJAX Wikipedia entry.
