ubuntu --- code to run python files at startup

hi everyone...
we have to run any python file e.g. show.py at startup..i.e. when OS starts it runs automatically.
we are proceeding this way,
writing a startup script named forfyp2 ,pasting it in init.d , making it exe using chmod , creating startup links using update-rc.d forfyp2 defaults. After this i think i should run at stratup automatically, but it is not ..please tell if any errors r there..thank you.
code is here...

#! /bin/sh
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides: forfyp2
# Required-Start: $local_fs $syslog $remote_fs
# Required-Stop: $local_fs $syslog $remote_fs
# Default-Start: 2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop: 0 1 6
# Short-Description: Start the usrpcode
### END INIT INFO
DESC=forfyp2.sh
DAEMON3=/etc/init.d/show.py
case "$1" in
start)
su - sarosh -c "sudo python $DAEMON3 start"
start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --exec $DAEMON3 || true
;;
stop)
su - sarosh -c "$DAEMON3 stop"
start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --exec $DAEMON3 || true
;;
restart|force-reload)
$0 stop
$0 start
;;
status)
status_of_proc "$DAEMON3" "$DESC" && exit 0 || exit $?
;;
*)
N=/etc/init.d/forfyp2
# echo "Usage: $N {start|stop|restart|reload|force-reload|status}" >&2
echo "Usage: $N {start|stop|restart|force-reload|status}" >&2
exit 1
;;
esac

exit 0

# vim:not

where show.py is a file just for testing.

#!/usr/bin/env python
print "i am sarosh"

Must be in shell, root can not logged in GNOME

Use "sudo -command-" and you'll asked your user password (not root password). Its work if user that logged in has administrators ability.
