Thanks a lot for the help. I used 'fsck' command at boot time and it recovered my filesystem successfully :) and now my system is working properly.
Thanks & Regards,

Run in text mode so that you can force the system to check the file system.
1. At the grub boot menu type the letter "a"
This will bring up a second grub screen for you to append options
to the kernel
2. Type a space and the number three, i.e. " 3"
This data tell the kernel to boot to runlevel 3 (text mode, X will
not be started).
3. Press the Enter key.
You should be presented with a login prompt upon completion of boot.
4. Log in as root.
5. Type the following:
The system will reboot and perform a file system check.
Note: After the file system has been checked X may still not work. At
this point you need to perform a check of installed packages using
