I wish to thank Frank and all the others who gave suggestions ;
Finally i solved it myself after some R&D by providing a
combination of more than one options. For the benefit of all, i
am giving below the cut paste of what i did

[root localhost ssh]# ssh -F /etc/ssh/ssh_config -X
root localhost
root localhost's password:
Last login: Sun Mar 20 16:54:13 2005 from localhost.localdomain
[root localhost root]# xhost +
access control disabled, clients can connect from any host
[root localhost root]# /usr/X11R6/bin/xclock

Gotcha!!!!!!!! There you go. It Works!!!!!!!!!
