Answer: They say once the car starts the battery is no longer needed but in fact it is! That is what I found after this experience. The battery terminal was loose so on the way battery got disconnected. As a result, the dashboard lights were going on and off during my 1 mile journey. I don't exactly remember how the engine was doing but it was scary. If you see a problem like this, check the battery connection. And yes battery is required even after you start your car. This is valid for newer cars 1998 onward. The older car might run ok as one comment says, since they don't have a computer.
