Hi Arnab,
Are you using activestate perl? If so, you need to get your module in a 
ppm format package from activestate instead of from cpan. If you want to 
manually download a module, you can get it from one of the activestate 
repositories at http://ppm.activestate.com/PPMPackages/zips/
However, if you are using activeperl or later, you should have 
a shortcut for Perl Package Manager (ppm) on your windows start menu 
that you can use to install and update modules. When you run ppm, go 
under the View menu and change it to show All Packages instead of just 
Installed Packages, and you should see Math::Pari on the list. Right 
click, mark it for install, and then click the green arrow to Run Marked 
Actions. That should do it for you. Of course, you need a working 
internet connection.

You should avoid using activeperl or because they 
had some bugs in the Package Manager.

For activeperl and earlier, I think you had to run the package 
manager from a command line. Check the documentation for how to set a 
repository and install a module. Or you could manually download the 
module, unzip it to a folder (I use c:\usr\site\lib\ppm-conf for the w32 
install packages), and then run "ppm install Math-Pari.ppd" from a 
command line in that folder. Each module you download will have a readme 
with the exact syntax to use to install.

Hope this helps.
