Terminating an employment contract

I signed a contract for an employment starting in a future date. Due to family reasons I decided not to take up that job and sent them a notice of withdrawal almost 3 months before the start date of the assignment. The contract doesn't mention any terms and clauses for termination of the contract from employee side. It mentions a lot of calsuses (related to performance, conduct etc.,) under which the employer can terminate the contract.

My question is, in the absense of any clause for termination from employee side, do I have the right to terminate the contract at any time? Can the employer challenge my withdrawal legally?
What are my rights?

Got to See the Contract

This comment is true of any query which concerns a contract: An attorney cannot offer an opinion concerning a contract without review the actual wording of the entire contract.
