Hmm ..not exactly a Kozhikode experience,but rather the K experience in Bangalore.MJ’s call was in the afternoon session too.Was mundo glad to see another IIITian face.
The Topic : some article about Dalits,their upliftment,futile measures,etc.,
Luckily,discussed the entire thing about caste ( particularly Dalits) with dad the day before.It was a 12 member group and I guess I did pretty well,though the GD became dry after 7 minutes.
I would give myself an 8.5/10 for GD .
the abbulu rip-off : This gural (read girl),who was sitting next to me in GD) came running to me after the GD and said , “You did reallly well !!” Geeee! Thanks a lot lady!
There were two interviewers ..
Tell us about urself ?What motivates you?How do you motivate others?
blah blah blaaaah !!!
Tell us about the political scenario in AP and why do you think Mr.Chandra Babu Naidu went down in the elections.
Talked about the farmers’ suicides! Also talked about the imbalance of concentration of attention towards the IT sector,etc.,
Do you think change of govt. helped in AP ?
Talked about the 1-lakh compensation plan of YSR backfiring with farmers killing themselves so their families get the money , excessive govt. debts from world bank & centre,etc.,
Tell us about diode and its characteristics.
Gave the answer I have been cramming since the past 3 years. 😉
How is diode used as a switch ?
Gave an almost text book answer 😀
What do you know of Laplace Transforms ?
Text book answer (I was a TA for signals and systems 😉 )
Why do you relate everything in life to the last lap of 1500 meters race ? (from my answers written in the form)
This is the highlight! I talked about the folktale of the running man :p ,the 90 kgs to 70 kgs weight loss ; and how such a thing is related to every aspect of life.Ended with the trademark dialogue, “Sir! I believe life’s a race and the path’s a pedestrian zone!So , start running!” and all three of us had a good laugh.
I would rate my PI at 7.5/10 🙂
the abbulu rip-off : The Prof. offered me a glass of water and I politely refused saying that I was not nervous at all.He was pleased to hear that (from what I could make out from his expression) !!
