with a knowledge of tools like mercury astra quicktest,qarun (compuware) how much time does one predict to learn SilkTest Tool, starting from basics ?

To learn "on your own" --- for sure will take longer than to learn it "with others help" such as attending the SilkTest Training Courses or having someone give you some kind of a one-on-one tutorials.
One things for sure BASICS as in automation are one and the same, its really amazing how many different ways these people find to implement them .. tools i am referring to ...
Well to answer your question, with the background of the tools that you have mentioned, it should take you round about 3-4 weeks to get a good hang of the tool.
For a detailed progress chart, check out the attachment ...it should be a very rough guide to gauge your progress.
