Go into the Site Settings of the site and assign that user (in this case,
"jai") some kind of permission to see things (reader, contributor, etc). You
have obviously created the user, but that user doesn't have any rights on
the site itself.

You are Authenticated as a user, but you are not Authorized as a user.
In other words you are logged in, but have no SharePoint rights.

You need to add the membership provider to the Web.config file of
Central Administration the same way that you added it to the Web.config
of the website. Then go into application management and add yourself as
a Site Collection Administrator for the site. Then you will be able to
log in and add additional users to the site normally.
