    It's ok to be wrong. It is not a bad thing. I used to feel upset when something I was so sure to be true was in fact wrong. There are definate facts that hold true in this Universe but we will never know them all...so it's ok to be wrong.

    Wrong Or Right

    without  falling in the   discussion  and debate  as what  is right  and what  is wrong I just  act according  to the voice of my concience and try to see things with the help of  that inner  eye  which  has light  enough to see things  in theier  true reality

    Yes

    I am wrong most of the time. I am illogical. I cannot deduce things or understand as much as I would like. But I can improve. I only ask that you do not condescend.
