awk with multiple condition

Hi Guys,

I just wanted to print all the lines execpt 1st and 3rd line. For that i wrote a awk command,

awk 'NR != 1 || NR != 3 {print $0}' c.out

the command is working if i give an equal to instead of not equal to.

In the case of not equal to, it gives me the entire file.

Can you anybody point out where i am going wrong.

Should be AND, no?

i do not want both the 1st and 3rd line.. thats why i used a OR (||) condition
