You can find subtasks of a parent using off the shelf JQL. I haven't seen anything else for the other way round.

Have a look at the JQL Tricks Plugin, a commercial one. it certainly has a method you can use.

I am on ondeamnd instance so can not use the plugins.Is there any other way? i think it is a basic query ..

I am afraid there is nothing in onDemand using which you can get this. Parent is however a field on the issue and hence you can use remote APIs (or CLI) to get this. You don't need JQL for it. Did you try that?
