		for (int i = 7; i > 0; --i) {
	private static int findMiddleElementInList(LinkedList list) {
		Node fastPtr = list.head;
		Node slowPtr = list.head;
		while (fastPtr.next != null && fastPtr.next.next != null) {
			fastPtr = fastPtr.next.next;
			slowPtr = slowPtr.next;
		System.out.println("Middle element is " + slowPtr.data);
