if i am not wrong , in polymorphism we create pointer to the base class, then that pointer shows multi faces and handles members of child too,(also called late binding), as per my information it is possible with the members of the same name as created in base class, it is needed that those functions are to be placed in back ground, so the pointer to the base class access access those members (with the same names as given n base) from child class too, IT IS POSSIBLE WITH virtual functions only, some where i read that polimorphism is related to the virtual functions only, if you have some extea knowledge please update me.. i will be happy to get new information .. waiting .. STILL FOR ME POLYMORPHISM IS POSSIBLE WITH VIRTUAL FUNCTIONS ONLY
