Considering this session was on the 15th of March ..this was a late post ..unpardonably late! Guess the final-year symptoms define lethargy..not my fault 😉 !
So my panel had 3 gentlemen ..2 Prof.s and a part of the alumni (I think)
The GD :
It was a case study again.It was formally called a “Business Study” !There were 9 candidates and I basically came out with good points.But for one thing …
I got blasted indirectly by a member of the panel ..who well!actually interrupted (rare! very rare) the GD to blast me 😦 No more details …
The PI :
It was a totally HR routine this time …
Okay Mr.V.V.Harish Baba . Whats the “BABA” for ..is it a surname ??
(gave a sentimental story about ma being a devotee of Sai Baba ..and yeah!not a surname)
Tell us about yourself!!
Which coaching institute are you from ??
What makes you think we should choose you over the others ?
(gave them two factors … an answer rehearsed ever since I got blasted :p in the GD … but I would rate it a good compensation for the “abbulu blasted at GD” phenomenon )
Rank all the candidates in the GD .
( Came upto rank 7 ….and one of the Prof.s seemed impressed and ended my digging-back-into-memory ordeal with a hey-your-rating-almost-matches-with-the-panel’s-rating look 🙂 )
So do you read newspapers ?
What kind of books do you read ?
Hindutva! So what did you infer from your reading on “Hindutva” ? And what do you think about the present state of BJP in accordance with following the Hindutva ideology ??
(yes again! once again! thnx. to STS and thnx to X for making me take that course)
Thank you , my boy!
…Thats it, done! I started off as a villain and at least ended up as a good,sensible (ahem!!) ,decent guy in front of them!
ps : Vasan thinks I will get through C! Says the same thing for everything.
ps1 : Oh yeah! The thin fellow had his gd-pi too that day,but was in a different panel.
ps2 : People in the outgoing batch are going senti ..but trying to hide it as much as they can. I am not going senti but trying to pretend that I am (wait!I am confused !!)
ps3 : Got a C- in CN.My worst grade till date in IIIT .I was more relieved because I wasn’t expecting to pass 🙂
ps4 : And yes! If I get a D in ECC , I would have covered the whole range of grades except F .Abbulugadu, a true IIITian !!! 😀
ps5 : Just finished finalizing my hit list.
