    What you said is correct in general. But in case of our code we can see places where we
catch runtime exceptions and fail without giving out the actual reason. If we think the reason
is of no use to the user, we should simply bubble them up and handle them accordingly in the
top most calling method.  If we think the reason is not of importance to the user, we can
simply log it and then send appropriate error messages.
    In the current code i wanted to force people to bubble up the runtime exceptions as well
and then take a call at the top most calling method. This way if something fails we do not
see multiple exception messages one for each level at which the failure occurred and with
different error messages leading to confusion.
