        I was not able to see any directory changes also without 
refreshing it.
I tried adding files and renaming the existing one but was not able to see 
the changes on the windows explorer.
We need to set sumthing in the samba.conf for this to happen?

Oh, that will not work. The change notify stuff I talked
about only works for directories, not for file contents. For
file content's it is a matter of the applications
themselves, but I'm not aware of a mechanism that would
allow this to work cross-platform.
