Just before i received your mail, i got an application BleachBit, from 
ubuntu software centre, and there was a provision for cleaning trash in 
it. I used it and it cleaned out the trash. Now it shows empty. But four 
disk squares remain next to trash.

You are right, it Brasero was showing the my home folder and branched 
out covering all.  Since i have not used Brasero before, there was not 
previous project, so i thought it was a formality.

Thanking you
