ajit, yes, surprisingly no one asked this in this thread.

and also why would the engine die when it was running along with the electricals, even if the alternator conked off!!!

Could this be because of a short circuit or something? I remember the same thing happening to me once in a junk 800 i used to use in Delhi. I did later get the alternator fixed, but that was for a different issue (battery not charging). Never found out why the "blackout" happened.

this could also happen due to a faulty earth wire..the terminal may not be secured correctly and tight!!

'Earth' denotes a return path for electrical current and is a part of DC and AC circuits. It has nothing to do with phase (which, as you pointed out is only in AC).
