Can anyone give us simple straight forward shader writing & mental ray scripting tutorials which will show us how it is done?

Here are some links to get you started:

http://www.arts.arizona.edu/christensen ... index.html (http://www.arts.arizona.edu/christensen/programming/mraynotes/index.html)
There also was a great site called Mentalray Primer with info that got me started. Unfortunally its no longer online. I have most of it saved in a zip file here: http://www.pixero.com/stuff/Mentalray_Primer.zip
Also take a look at the source code for the MR base shaders. I dont know if they come with Max but you can find them at mentalimages: ftp://ftp.mentalimages.com/data/pub/shaders/
