Thank you for your concern Aakar bro, I already managed to solve the issue. Now, all the images are loaded on my own paid host. You are right, we can't depend upon such free host site for long.

and, pressing CTRL + F5 would do the magic if you are seeing the same old blog 'image not found' things on my blog. It force-refreshes and reloads the cache of your browser :)
