Unable to use TWI on nrf52840

Hi 

I am trying to use the TWI on nrf52840 but i am unable to get it to work. its getting stuck somewhere. I dont have a logic analyzer so i am unable to check if the signal are coming or not. I am able to use the I2C with apache mynewt so i dont think its the hardware problem. i have doubled checked the pin assignments for SCL and SDA as well. I have attached the code. Please help me out.

Output on the terminal:

<info> app: TWI scanner started
<info> app: Function return code: NRF_SUCCESS
<info> app: after twi_init
