@diptesh1ce3 : Following book is highly recommended .
Algorithms by Cormen .
For a good mathematical background read
Discrete Mathematics by C.L. Liu
It also depends on your background and what you have already read . So please introduce yourself if you want more specific suggestions . Anyways these 2 books can easily become a companion for a very long time .

The Algorithm Design Manual by Steven S. Skiena is another must have book which teaches basic to advanced algorithms in simple and lucid manner. You can buy it here or download its pdf by a simple google search.

Algorithms by Sanjoy Dasupta, Christos Papadimitriou, Umesh Vazirani - less rigorous than Cormen. - shorter book with ample problems to practice - explanations rely on giving intuition
