    Only gonna work if I am at centre .
    First step –  I will move in any direction .
    Second step – I will move in perpendicular direction to straight line joining me to centre.

    Now even she pull me back. My distance from centre will still increase.
    Now continuing  this every time you will notice my distance from centre is root 1 then after next step root 2 then root 3 .when finally it will be root 10000 we will get out.
    Since going from every step to next step takes a second so going from root 1 to root 10000 will take 10000 seconds.
