    Chhavi7, I'm not sure what you mean. "Thoughtless" is indeed a word.

    Can you ask your question in another way?

    Thoughtless is an adjective and therefore cannot be the subject of a sentence.

    Perhaps you meant thoughtlessness which is a noun.

    Thoughtlessness does not exist.

    This is certainly open to interpretation but I would say that this statement in not true in fact...though it is a proper sentence.
