Oh wait, you're talking about the sibling div right? The only way you could make it's height relative to the content of a sibling element is to use Javascript.

You can use percentages to help. When you say the text increases you mean when you add content?

Hello Folks,
let me agian explain my problem.
if you see the code
the div with class home1_bar should increase in height as the text matter in the div with class home1_text increases.
Presently the div with class home1_bar remains of the same height irrespective of the increase in the text matter in div with home1_text.

I have no idea what you're trying to accomplish, but this will give you a different result:

<div class="home1">
<div class="home1_bar">
<div class="home1_text">We intend to assist deserving Indian manufacturers of workshop tools, to export in the world market using our experience and contacts of over 50 years.
