shailesh --

depends on which way you're going.  from on or just before
the "{", type C-M-f.  from just after the "}", type C-M-b.
these same commands also work for "(", ")", and "[", "]".
oh, note that you can't do this for braces in a lisp-mode
buffer.  the reason for all this is that these commands
work for whatever is considered matching delimiters in the
major mode of the buffer.  hope this helps.
