Knots, Links & 3-dimensional manifolds: meeting ground for Physicists and Mathematicians.

I will briefly discuss the salient features of knots, links and the construction of three-manifolds. These results can be nicely seen from a topological quantum field theory called Chern-Simons theory. I will highlight some of our results obtained using Chern-Simons theory.
