Well, i read that , if we write t1.join() in a main method() where t1 is an instance of thread, then it implies

1. main thread would be moved from Running state to Blocked state with guarantee and would wait for an event of completion of t1 thread.

Problem :- Suppose , i want to say in some thread that join main, then how to do so ???

Thanks !!!

In that case that other thread will need the main thread's instance to call join on. Something like this
