    1. Thank you again my friend.The whole problem of misunderstanding comes because of lack of proper communication either by the improper words we use though one doesn’t mean it or simply what I call improper decoding by the other person.majority of the times,the listener lacks patience in properly deciphering the discussion.
      “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”
      George Bernard Shaw
