git checkout HEAD~2 ISSUE
I am on master branch and I did 2 local commits(not pushed) on top of commit which is pushed to remote. I want to to get my local working master branch in sync with remote.So i ran the command
git checkout HEAD~2
I am successfully able to get my current working branch to 2 commits back and is in sync with remote master but locally i am seeing that i am working on "no branch"

$ git branch

Because of this i am not able to do further pull/push operations associated with this branch.Can someone please tell why is this behaviour ? I am new to git so kindly tell me if my understanding is wrong in anyway ?
