Usually from weak,(small gauge wire) cables , improper hook-up,(backwards) or not connected good. If your vehicle has something stuck on that is drawing lots of power is a possibility too. Match them up + to +, and - to -. Do negative last.

There is a little fuse in the + cable going from the alternator to the battery, if you tried to connect it after the fuse is blown, the alternator could be damaged too...get an electrician to check it all out

Please tell me where are the positive and negetive ends of the battery for a jump start, my batttery is dead Dr.S.V.Anand

If you can locate the battery, telling the positive from the negative terminal easy.

Inspect the terminals closely; the positive terminal has a 'plus' (+) sign near it. This terminal is also larger than the other (usually).

Similarly the negative terminal has a 'minus' (-) near it.

Also visit this page for more information on jump starting.

Headlights are not working

You seem to have a stuck H/lmp relay, Taking out the circuit breaker only disabled part of the electrics,
If you examine the fusebox / Relay housing s (there may be more than one . You should be able to identify suspect relay (it will be warm to touch) . You may need to examine the Running lights / Dimmer H/lamp circuit if it had one. Putting an Amp meter across ( in line not parallel ) the not running vehicle will indicate drain from battery . There might be a slight arc upon connection but it will level out to near zero drain.
