Ajeeb daastan hai ye...... (Man I love this song!!!)
@kartikeya and khushaal

Thanks for sharing guys!! What were your ECA and hobbies like? Any significant ahievements in those areas? I am asking because I find it weird that there are no HR questions and hobby questions. I have a feeling they go into Extra-currics and hobbies etc. only if you either have significant achievements in those areas or if you lead the interviewers to ECA and hobbies with your answers.

All the best to everyone!! May they ask everyone only the stuff that they know well ;)

Raze, I don't have many things in profile.. My hobbies just include painting and body building.. May be they both were oblivion to these two things.. Thats y they didn't ask much about them.. But you should prepare each and every aspect of ur profile... And about HR questions, As per my observations, theY have stopped asking those questions for which Coaching instititutes provide reay-made answers... ATB!

Precis - It's always approximately 1/3rd of the original writing... Never try to copy -paste anything from the original writing... Write in your own language

ESSAY-- Essays are always written in paragraphs... Generally 3 or more....

Ist paragraph should be introduction.. If essay is on a social/economic problem, Elaborate different dimensions of the problem in1st para..

In 2nd para... Elaborate the different solutions for the problem

in last para take your concrete stand for the best course of solution....

Letter writing--- Nowadays all the salutations and addresses are written on The LEFT HAND SIDE....No more room for norms here.. Your creativity and choice of words will pay you here....


I"m not appearing for the test tomorrow coz preparing for IIMA PI for march 14.. But All the best, Give your best shots there....

hair care thread on PG!

I gotta hair fall prob due to tensionsss....!
what should I do..um a bit lazy too..! :|


I too had this problem.... First of all to alleviate ur tensions start watching some Laughter shows.. Like Rowan Atkinson's Mr. Bean....


Secondly, To Lessen Your amount of Hair-fall, Start doing some aerobic exercises like Jogging, Skipping, Stretching.. These increase our blood flow and our blood reaches our hair follicles which make them strong..


Third, If your hair-fall is severe then you may Shave your Head(If u can).. Shaving will not stop ur hair-fall..Rather you will get 2-3 months' time to correct the problem... In those 2-3 months U should Put kilo-liters of Ayurvedic oil to ur head.. These oil re avilable at normal chemist shop...


Fourth one which is Most Important ..Try to think why depression causes Hairfall????
Here is the answer... It makes our body stop producing Testosterone ( a hormone responsible for hair growth etc) ... Zinc is responsible for creation of this testosterone in our body... So eat those foods which are enriched with Zinc...


IF you're Non-veg then eat chicken and fish atleast twice a week...
And If you're Veg.. then only nuts like almonds have good amount of Zinc...


P.S. there are some supplements of minerals available in market .. u can also go for that .. but consult a dermatologist before going for these supplements...
