Hi Satya and welcome to bytes.com!

What to learn next is very much dependent on what you want to do. Here are a few thoughts:
  • If you want to do anything even remotely related to what you're doing now, I'd recommend making sure you have at least a fundamental understanding of XML; however the better your understanding here is the better you'll be able to use it of course. XSD, XSLT and XPath are related technologies that can also be very useful.
  • If you want to do web development, PHP is probably a good idea. Also, if you don't know them already I'd recommend learning CSS and JavaScript. Make sure you know what AJAX is too.
  • If you want to go into application development, you'll have to learn a programming language. (HTML is a markup language which is not the same.) Personally I mainly use Java and am very happy with it (well, mostly), but others may recommend other languages; basically if you have someone who will teach you a major programming language then that is a good place to start.
  • If you want to go into mobile development you have two choices: either decide on a platform to develop native apps for (Android or iOS are the two most common, though Windows Phone may be a viable alternative) and learn the language(s) required or try to develop cross platform apps with one of the solutions available for that (though those are rarely free and at least in some cases less efficient in terms of optimisation for any given platform).
  • If you want to go into system administration, learn about Linux/UNIX and the various technologies used in the systems you're interested in - this might mean web or application servers or data bank software to give you just a few examples.
Now, those are just a few ideas that sprung to mind; basically the idea is that you choose something you'd like to do and then find out what you'll need to do it. There are many paths open in the world of computers.
