<urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9">
  <url>
    <loc>http://saurabhsays.com/</loc>
    <lastmod>2012-09-22</lastmod>
    <changefreq>monthly</changefreq>
    <priority>0.8</priority>
  </url>
  <url>
    <loc>http://saurabhsays.com/add-website-google/</loc>
    <lastmod>2012-09-22</lastmod>
    <changefreq>monthly</changefreq>
    <priority>0.5</priority>
  </url>
.... and other <url> blocks...
</urlset>

Each sitemap has <urlset> block followed by <url> blocks. Each <url> block consists of location<loc>, last modification date <lastmod>, change frequency of the page <changefreq> and priority of the page <priority>. You can use online service like
