Raj,
if you wrap your visualforce content inside a html tag, it will get rid of the unwanted calendar control.

<apex:page standardcontroller="Account" contentType="application/msword; charset=Windows-1252" extensions="GenerateReport_BR" language="en" cache="true">

<html>
Keep your existing content here..
</html>

</apex:page>

you have to use Documents using the full Url, like https://c.domain.content.force.com/servlet/servlet.ImageServer?id={docIdHere}&oid={orgIdHere}

It is also advisable to keep your content as said above in the <html> tags, plus stick it all in a div called WordSection1, like <div class="WordSection1"> when you have a class defined in the style tags:

@page WordSection1
    {size:8.5in 11.0in;
    margin:0.125in 0.25in;
    mso-header-margin:.0in;
    mso-footer-margin: 0.125in;
    mso-paper-source:0;
    mso-footer:f1;
border:solid windowtext 1.5pt;
padding:9.0pt 17.0pt 27.0pt 17.0pt;   
    }

div.WordSection1
    {page:WordSection1;}
    p.MsoFooter, li.MsoFooter, div.MsoFooter {
    mso-pagination:widow-orphan;
    }

There's a lot of tricks to know when exporting to word.
