"Red or Blue - which one should I choose?"
Try both, figure out what you like.

There are a lot of very large companies that use .net
There are a whole lot more that use Java.

If you're in the Java environment, its easier to go towards Android.
If you're in .net, there is almost no barrier to go to all Windows platforms - desktop or mobile.

The documentation on the Windows side is (as others have mentioned) truly amazing: MSDN (online or offline).
The documentation gaps in either case are filled in by StackOverflow.

A career can be built from either one of these technologies.
There is no one right answer.
All the best.

For God's sake stay clear of .net.
It's a sinking (and burning?) platform.

i ask this as proper documentation is something i really care about
Which basis do you need? I've learned both, and worked with both. Microsoft documentation is just pretty fantastic.

you made a good point but leaving too much details in your brief post its cryptic as well
care to explain as to why you think like that
personally i dont have a problem with either
my main problem is which one should be selected to start with

reusablity of existing knowledge is what i am after the most next to good documentation

i dont want to be in a position where i have to start all over if i want to learn something else later

my questions are like this as i aint familear with either of those.

what about python i mean what kind of background is neded for it
and what kind of code experimentation can be done on n900

This. I'd forget .net or java (or just pick one at random). But do learn math. Programming is just a subset of computer science which is a subset of mathematics (yes, I'm not a "professional" programmer .

Plus you'll earn much more. Later, but much more.

i started taking mathematics classes 7 months back and i am improving but at a slower rate i am glad i did that though it was hard to convince myself to do it i just regret not paying attention or more like avoiding mathematics like the plague at the early stages ;
