Background image not showing up

Hey i am developing a wp theme from scratch.I want to set a background image.

So i have declared some css code inside the body but it didnt works actually..

The code is


<body <?php body_class(); ?> > 
<div id="avinash">
<header class = "firstclass">
<h1><a href="<?php home_url(); ?>"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>
<h2><?php bloginfo('description') ?> </h2>

<nav class="mythirdclass">
<?php wp_nav_menu(); ?>



<?php wp_footer(); ?>
<div class = "mysecondclass">
<footer class="asampleclass">


body {
background: url('background.jpg') no-repeat top left;

The image background.jpg is in the same directory actually..But this code isnt working for me..

Any help would be appreciated..Thanx
