Hi  Pankaj,

I have always been partial  to PyMol for visualization and terrific 
graphics. Swiss-PDB viewer is good on visualizatoin (not as great as 
PyMol), but  adds modelling functionality, should you require it.

People I know praise Molscipt for pulish-quality graphics. But I am not 
experienced with that.

Hope this helps,
