The cutest panel on the planet,, they were so easy going,, they were not asking any questions related to academics,, banking or anything,, they were just assessing the personality of the candidate,, it was like chatting with your aunt or uncle in neighbourhood,, infact chatting with your uncle may seem tougher if compared to my interview,,:shocked: I bet,, you guys wont believe that this actually happened, even I didnt

(I was shocked to death,,, IS THAT IT ??? are you kidding me guys,,)
(P3 sensed what I was feeling,, n asked one more question)
P3: How are you gonna be useful to us ??
Me: My skills,, knowledge,, background blah blah blah blah
P3: Okay,, Thank You,, You may go now,, :shocked:
(I looked at all of them,, still in disbelief,, they were smiling,, but they were serious,, indeed,, they really wanted me to leave)
Me: Thanx a lot,, it was a pleasure interacting with the panel,,
I talked with a lot of guys at the centre,, they had the same experiences,, even they were shocked,, but they were atleast asked few banking questions,, but mujhse toh ek b question nahi puchha,, seriously,, one of the most weird situation in my life, but it was good,, had a really good time,,
I forgot to mention onething here,, that I was the last guy before lunch,, n before my interview started,, when I was waiting outside,, one of the panel member(P3) came out n asked the peon,, if the food was ready to be served,, then he said,, we r gonna interview one or two more n then we'll have lunch,, I guess,, I was the lucky last one,, dont know about the marks but I enjoyed the process,,
All The Best to all other puys for the interviews
