    Jan 22 2013: I don't know whether acting by the emotions is right thing to do.Usually i think we do make decisions by heart rather by mind when we are emotionally driven by a person and when we make decisions we can't judge exactly whether it is right or wrong.It all depends upon the result of the decision made.
