Meena, try this:

When you insert the picture, make sure "Float Over Text" is NOT checked. The inserted image should now be constrained to belong to a paragraph, thus forcing it to obey the page margins.

Otherwise, Word treats the image as a graphical element that literally just floats over the page (wherever it bloody well feels like it, IMHO).
