Hi Ankit, 

Salesforce lightning is a new version of salesforce where there is a complete change in the UI framework. Lightning works on the VCCM approach. that is View-Controller-Controller-Model. Most of the logic will be executed at the browser level in the client side controller js file, hence the performance wise this version will be better and having a capability of caching it reduces server calls. 

Salesforce classic is the previous version which works on page-centric approach. Whenever there is a certain operation, a complete page will be reloaded in the browser.

Please note that underlying concepts are similar in both the versions. If you are starting on Salesforce, I recommend you to go through the basic concepts of Salesforce before starting lightning framework.
