Sorry to say. But i am not agree with you. Mounting means pointing some hard
disk space in the file system to my /media directory. If I am deleting a
pointer why should my data at the pointer will be deleted. All I want to
know is this much.

There is another thing like symliks(shortcuts in windows). I thought of
mounting as this only. It is ridiculous if Deleting a shortcut will cause
the data to be deleted. :(

By the way No body told me that. It was my intuition and I did not verify.
My Fault of course.  Learned the lesion very hard way.
