Thanks!! but can you send me any link that says Virtual method in c# is equivalent to abstract in java.b'cos I came across following:

What is the difference between virtual and abstract?

These two keywords are sometimes confused because both can be over-ridden. However, unlike Virtual members, Abstract members have no implementation.

All methods in java are virtual.

Well in very siple words:
Abstract methods are "pure virtual", they don't have a body and MUST be implemented (overrided) by the childs in order for them to be instantiable, orelse they are abstract classes too.
Virtual methods CAN be overrided, they provide an implementation but can be modified by the derived classes (through override).
Therefore an abstract method IS a virtual method and obviously the reverse is not true.

And yes, in Java all the methods are virtual (can be overriden in derived classes), so you won't find out a word for it.
