Pradeep,

It would be cool if your utility could be incorporated into sleuthkit.  
Sleuthkit has fat and NTFS parsers for sure already.  I think ext2 and ext3.  
Adding a xfs parser would be a cool addition.

 http://www.sleuthkit.org/sleuthkit/docs/api-docs/index.html#users_guide

Fyi: sleuthkit has been around for a long time, but it is still actively 
maintained and heavily used.  It is in several linux distros, but is also 
available for windows.
