```Thanks Jean and Nick.

The method suggested by Jean is still giving me the same kind of
problem I had cited. I guess if it is due to just the randomness in boot
strapping that would be solved if I change my present number of iteration
from 20 to say, some 300 or 500.

Thanks anyways...
Rijo John.
