For past few months, I have lost interest in everything. Every damn thing seems so pointless. Everyone just run around trying to keep themselves involved with illusions to escape reality. There are many threads on this topic all over the web and I read many, but still I am yet to be satisfied with an answer. My existence does not make any difference in this world. So my death too won't make any. We, the product evolution just simply exist. And if we look at the most basic level, we are nothing but a mass of many atoms stacked one upon another held together by a force. Therefore upon my death all my atoms will rearrange and go back within earth.

I take it you don't have a walk with the Creator God, since you seem only to think you exist because the atoms in your dna are packed the right way. What your saying reminds me of the book of Ecclesiastes, where for the writer, everything under the sun is meaningless.
Ecc 1:2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all [is] vanity.
Ecc 1:3 What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?
Ecc 1:4 [One] generation passeth away, and [another] generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.
Ecc 1:5 The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.
Ecc 1:6 The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.
Ecc 1:7 All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea [is] not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
Ecc 1:8 All things [are] full of labour; man cannot utter [it]: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.

If you are interested, I can involve you in a project that may ultimately (perhaps) be the most significant effort of the last 2,000+ years on this planet. And all you have to do is be just as skeptical and unwilling to believe that life has any mean whatsoever as you are right now, and try to understand what a specific examination that's been spelled out in a published form is trying to reveal. What I want is the honest appraisal of an average person who isn't devoted to any one ideology or belief system, and I'm willing to give you the material and entertain every question and comment you have concerning the material.
The premise is specifically focused on the precise nature of physical existence and why the human being exists - basically, whether life is, indeed, pointless or not. It's not philosophical or ideological, and it doesn't sell anything at all to anyone. It's just a very detailed presentation of what is real, why it exists, and how we all fit into it.
U2U me if you find this project interesting. This offer isn't being extended to very many people, but you seem to have a unique qualification that I haven't encountered yet, so I am very interested in your point of view as it might relate to this overall effort.
At the very least, it could give you a very important reason to live for the next six months or so. If this project does reveal what I believe it will reveal, then this will be something that you can point to in the end as being a significant reason for your having been born into this world. That much I can promise you if you agree to help out with your time and intellectual effort.
I'll await your U2U response.
