in reply to HTML::Tree look_down is not working

Running your code the HTML in $article (cut down) looks like
<form action="" id="raaga" method="get" name="raaga" onsubmit="return validate(this);" > <table align="center" border="0" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="2" height="100%" width="100%" > <tr> <!-- snipped --> </tr> </table> </form>
There is one table but it doesn't have an id attribute. It has a width attribute of 100%. So your
my $table = $article->look_down(_tag=>'table',class=>'dataTbl',width=> +"450");
won't find anything ($table will be undef).

There is a lot of javascript. When I point Firefox at that url the response does not contain a form with an id of raaga. What does the page look like when you log in?

Give a bit more detail on what you are trying to do.
