/Wajid AliSalam Wajid Ali,
Well OpenGL is the core library which provides programmers with 2d and 3d graphics routines. However to setup a particular application, you have to deal with the platform specific code to setup windows in which you do your rendering.
GLUT is a toolkit that enables you to setup platform specific code with the minimum of fuss.

OpenGL is an API, GLUT is just a(n old) library
You can check the RedBook (http://www.rush3d.com/reference/opengl-redbook-1.1/) out to learn more about OpenGL and GLUT
