Try running your query using normal blastall.  It is possble that there 
was a communication error somewhere, from looking at the error report. 
The other possibility I see is that


You want to seperate the shared and local directories (assuming that 
/home/kalyani is shared NFS).  You want the local directory to be local 
to the compute node.  It is quite possible/likely that you are 
overwriting some critical aspects of your data since the two are sitting 
  atop each other.  You might consider using /tmp as a local directory, 
though I usually prefer using local disk space outside system /tmp.
