Hello i am using git . I am stuck in following scenario .....

Assume --> My Local Machine STATE = X
GitHub STATE = Y
Initially --> I made a pull , so X == Y

1. I made some changes in my local machine. ( My Local Machine STATE = X' )
2. I made a commit followed by push on GitHub ( Github STATE = X')
3. Now i want to revert to a state where the repository was before i made my last pull from GitHub. ( I mean i want to switch back to state X and want Github state to be Y again )

How to achieve that ??

Essentially i want to remove the following'

1. Effect of my push on github.
2. My local machine state back to the point where i started making last changes.

Did you try "git reset"?
