In the theme folder there is probably a folder called cache where timthumb stores the images it creates. Make sure this is writable, as otherwise timthumb can't put it's images anywhere and simply fails to load anything.

No, i have even tried by doing a fresh wordpress installation and uploaded the theme, but still it didn't worked on this server, it is working fine on other server as well as my local pc. – user930026 Nov 24 '11 at 18:56
Well the fact that it works on other servers makes me suspect my answer is correct. The folder may not be called cache but there will be a folder somewhere in your theme that timthumb uses to store previously created images. This folder needs to be writable - when I've solved this problem in the past I always set to 777 - it may not need to be that liberal. Also Karma is a premium theme so the better place to ask for solutions is in the comments on theme forest where the author will be able to help you out directly. – patnz Nov 24 '11 at 19:20
