And if you all wish, I will not comment over here.

@Vision, Sorry for being personal over here in answering to a question, but couldn't stop myself when people start questioning your attitude after having devoted so much time to this thread and making it running.

This verbal duel forced me to post me atlast.
First of all thank you palak for giving us fruitful information throughout this thread and if not for you this thread would have been dead long back.
Secondly, just because of few who didnt happen to read previous pages and just blatantly said things against you; you cannot generalise that "if you all" not want....infact many users like me who have benefited from your posts but have not posted here will strongly sought your opinion about civil sevices....
Just because of exceptions palak you cannot change the rule...and atlast u r aspiring for UPSC .If others are immature( and they are) i would expect you to forgive them of thier ignorance....
I completely agree with you regarding book part....
PS:- This is one of very few posts which i have posted in pagalguy....I tried to restrain from personal attacks ...if still anybody feels I regret for that.


u can go for french of german FL course.
also,some CSR activities can alsobe considered by you!!!!!!!!

Some words about the panel and its general behavior/conduct: Panel was chilled. Not that stressful. They did not give much expressions so cannot say what they were really thinking.It was a nice experience meeting them.

P2 : Close the door and sign the sheet...
Me: I obliged, ofcourse

P2: Offered me pen and said sit down(i was standing)
Me:I already had pen!!!

P3:o, Ankit you write from Left Hand?

P2:Nobody forced you to change it?

P1:Some Questions about my company...model its follow

Now comes Question of the day...

P1:Ankit what we have observed in XL is that ppl after two yrs pass out with high paypackage usually of the scales of such transformation comes ??
Me:(I made Such a fool of myself!!!) said about proff ,XL culture and its brand value....well thats correct but should have also spoken about my strength and qualities ( i think this was a blunder...becoz he was giving me time to think and then answer but i just couldnt think that at that moment!!!!!!!!)

Now P3...

Me:- no sir ...i enjoy reading .

Advice:- Please please elaborate your answer please....and generally it doesnt happen that they dont question Why HRM? Two ppl before me were grilled alot about why hrm and they came out red faced.So,naturally i was also expecting grilling but mine was shockingly chilled out!....and yes on first thought it looked as if they didnt ask why hrm or XL....but with that 'question of the day' how subtly he asked me...i admire P1 just becoz of that guys always keep ur presence of mind awaken!

Verdict: GD was awsome PI was ok.....hoping to get atleast waitlisted(
