He emphasized that despite difference of opinions, problems can be smoothly addressed and sorted out by adopting an attitude of showing respect, appreciation, understanding views and feelings of others and arriving at solutions which appear possible, logical and within the overall constraints of the situation. “Many a times, this approach would lead to the resolution of the conflict accepted as a win-win solution.”
