What is the name of the method used to schedule a thread for execution and that for executing a thread?
feel it is start() and run() simultaneously.

You are right.
Its run() - for executing a therad. &
start() - for scheduling a thread.

you can not execute a thread. Calling start will put it in runnable state but calling 'run' will just use that method in the current thread. You can think of the 'thready' code existing in 'start' only.
I agree. Here's the link:
