Writing a presentation frame and its corresponding narration at the same time can help us to reduce the complexity.

In other words, I need a mechanism as follows (it is a pseudo-code)

\begin{frame}{Introduction}
\begin{slide}
%slide content to show
\end{slide}
\begin{narration}
%narration goes here.
\end{narration}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}{Definition}
\begin{slide}
%slide content to show
\end{slide}
\begin{narration}
%narration goes here.
\end{narration}
\end{frame}

%etc...

Is there a package to write slide and narration contents at the same time but produces each separately at the final?

As Martin says below, this is possible using the Article Mode where it is possible to divide your document into "stuff inside frames" and "stuff outside frames" and process the two separately. However, that's not quite the scheme you describe as both your sets of stuff are inside frames. If that is what you want, it would be very easy to implement but I don't know of a package that already does it. –  Loop Space Feb 23 '11 at 8:40

Have a look in the beameruserguide. The beamer class supports an "article version" that can co-exist in the same file as your slides. The relevant section in the manual is named

Creating Handouts Using the Article Mode
