comment du command does not parse hidden directories
now i found the problem. The problem was the hidden directory was a symbolic link, So i had to use "du -Lsh dir_name". Thanks.

comment du command does not parse hidden directories
I am not using "du *". I forgot to mention in the question that i need the total summary summary. so if i use both -a and -s as in du -as i get an error message saying "du: cannot both summarize and show all entries". This is one issue. The other thing is that i even with du -a i get to see only the first level files. i.e unable to see files inside hidden directories.
