  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
    command line.
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:

    touch /forcefsck

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
