https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/String-searching_algorithm#Na%C3%AFve_string_search
this algorithm tries to find the pattern from every position of
the mainString if pattern is found from position i it add it to
the answer and does the same for position i+1
Complexity : O(n*m)
    n=length of main string
