Now, It makes sense. I gave it another try and this time I walk from back to 
front.

Now you can see, that I have created, a new file called *file.txt*, in the 
*master branch*. Now I went to a new branch and made some changes there in the 
newly created file. This time I didn't add it or commit too. I just came back 
to *master branch*. Now if I do *ls*,  can see the file is present in the 
*master* branch.

arup@linux-wzza:~/Git_tutorial> ls
test.txt
arup@linux-wzza:~/Git_tutorial> echo "hello" > file.txt
arup@linux-wzza:~/Git_tutorial> ls
file.txt  test.txt
arup@linux-wzza:~/Git_tutorial> git status
# On branch master
# Untracked files:
#   (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)
#
#       file.txt
nothing added to commit but untracked files present (use "git add" to track)
arup@linux-wzza:~/Git_tutorial> cat file.txt
hello
arup@linux-wzza:~/Git_tutorial> git checkout -b "file_branch"
Switched to a new branch 'file_branch'
arup@linux-wzza:~/Git_tutorial> cat file.txt
hello
arup@linux-wzza:~/Git_tutorial> echo "hello World" > file.txt
arup@linux-wzza:~/Git_tutorial> cat file.txt
hello World

Switched to branch 'master'
