Shilpi, Aileen, I've seen your posts.

kaRouting is a demo application, the code is available but I have no 
time to give assistance for it. I'm sorry.
I know other guys used successfully this module but you need to be 
skillful in so many things that the work results complicated.

I've developed another solution for routing using GRASS but I think it 
can be even more complicated:

hope you'll find the time and patience to dive in the application.
