Welcome Sreenath! Run the Ubuntu live cd,mount the drive where you installed Ubuntu(running Gparted application help you to see where is Ubuntu)and open a terminal(Cntrl+Alt+T open a terminal).Type this command Sudo update-grub.If it ask you to be root,then type sudo -i and run the previous command.Reboot your system and it should work.
