If i have an open source library which says that i can make any modifications to it but then i must distribute the resultant modified lib with the same license.
Now, i mix some gpl code along with the code of the library.

So now if i am to distribute the lib, then will the library be licensed acc to its original license or with gpl cause according to gpl any code that uses it should be gpl too??? :confused:

You are mixing two incompatible licenses. You might want to:
1. remove GPL bits you incorporated and live without it,
2. find code under non-restrictive license and replace GPL'd code, or
3. implement the part yourself
as long as you want to use the major part of the library.

clippy, this is a great example that GPL is a rights-violating license virus...
