Now i need to get all the records which consists of the string
venu(case should not be considered either case should be).i.e i should get
1,2,3,4,5,8 records
A simple way is ...

 ...
  WHERE LOCATE('venu', col_name ) > 0
  ...

or if the column is [VAR]BINARY, LOCATE('venu',CAST(col_name AS CHAR)) for case insensitivity.
