Hi Taru and other potential org-babel collaborators,

org-babel-init.el is what you need, so:

(add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/org-babel/lisp")
(require 'org-babel-init)

After that, good starting points to see in action some of the
functionality that Eric has implemented are the `Sandbox' section of
org-babel.org, and the large table in the `Tests' section. C-c C-c
anywhere in a source code block in the Sandbox should execute that
block. In the Tests section, C-u C-c C-c in the table runs a suite of
tests of org-babel functionality, updating the table with the results of
code evaluation in several languages, and flagging up failed tests (more
fun if you clear out the `results' and `pass' column first).
