I had run the command #rm -rf ~ instead of #rm -rf *~, but this command 
is not from /root . It is from /root/xxx/yyyy. And the effect is  not 

I had also lost the files .bash_profile and .bashrc.
I had copied these two files from other system and tried. Now it is  is 
working fine.
But i didnt understand how deleting the tilt in a sub-directory inside 
the /root affected  these files.

Thank u prashanth and balaji narayanan.
