What are the basic requirements(any Programming language knowledge) to start with Python?

It helps if you're familiar with at least one object-oriented language or are otherwise familiar with the concepts of object-oriented design.

Take a look at The Beginner's Guide.

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.

actually, even if you're not familiar with programming in general or with object oriented concepts, Python is a great language to learn them with. i'm picking up Java much better for having learned Python first, i think.

texts you might be interested in include How to Think like a Computer Scientist and maybe Dive into Python. (check the additional links in the sidebar of that latter page, they're good.) also, of course, the entire Python documentation collection, including especially the tutorial.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
