Hey nitya ,

I understand your feeling of not to be called a "Script Kiddie" , but you must understand a major part of Pen-Testing/Hacking , KNOW YOUR TOOLS , I dont recommend you to be totally dependent on GUI tools and Point and Click hacking!
But tools have their own importance! You cant avoid them!

The difference between a script kiddie (Dependent on Tools) and a Real Security pen-Tester is that a Pen-tester faces different situations and solve them by making customized scripts and Programs which a skiddie only dream of!

So , To be a successful security pen-tester you have to use tools but at the same time know its working , Customize it , Make Scripts , Automate Tasks , Make Programs , Know networking etc!

Suggestions :-

Read books on Networking
Learn Programming (A Major Part)
Learn about Open-source
Learn about Linux , and its Shell Scripting
