    Nov 9 2011: We are all scared of making mistakes....however if we dont know whats wrong ,how can we know whats right? We even learned how to walk by making mistakes,by falling,getting up ..falling again but at last on day we could stand on our own feet.Being human we arent born perfect,we learn by the trial and error method,we are expected to make mistakes.Whats the best attitude to face mistakes?....start a new page?,erase?,forget?.....no,i think we should cross out the mistake and write the right answer next to it instead.
