Are you able to do

ls -al /home/phaley/Papers/2011/ArpitVel/SvnPaper

What about: 
find /home/phaley/Papers/2011/ArpitVel/SvnPaper -type f -exec cat {}\; >

To me it sounds as if your NAS has some disk problem which might be
hardware related, or, if you are lucky, only a logical error caused by a
clumsy uncontrolled boot. If you have a logical error it might be possible
to fix with some kind of fsck depending upon what kind of NAS you have.
