in thread why the array index has to start at 0??

Please tell me who in India taught you how to code
Nobody taught me, I did self learning from C .. Perl.

who otherwise put the idea in your head that array indecies (or anything else programming-wise) should begin with 1
It is purely my idea/thought
BTW my idea is not to advocate anyone that start using the array index from 1, just wanted to know why it is that way.

so I can punch them in the neck.
you can't :)
