Hi Bishwajit,
There are usually several ways to do the same thing. If you use the Find Clashes/Contacts or FindHBond tools mentioned in previous messages, they can report the distances to a file or the Reply Log. Or, you can pick two atoms from the screen and then measure distance, as in this tutorial,

...or use the "Distances" tool or the "distance" command

... how to specify atoms in commands (example: distance :144 at ca :188 at ca)

You should try the tutorials and use the Help in Chimera before sending questions to this list.  You can search for topics of interest from the Chimera menu, "Help... Search Documentation" -- for example, search for "distance"
