Had my GD/PI on 21st ..8:30 am..Venue IMT - G
After doc verifications..we were led to our GD rooms..GD topic chosen was on how films are responsible for the corruption of today's youth..GD was a total fish market....the panel meembers had that sadistic smile on their faces..that almost said..ki beta...tu log to gaye...
After an 8 min nautanki...we were told to summarize one by one...with the panel randomly calling out people's names toas dead bored and sick of the topic..so screwed up the summary royally!
that was followed by a written summary of the discussion ( yawwwnn! )
Anyways , we came back to the common room and then the PIs began...my serial no. being 12 , i had a nice long wait before i got a chance to go in...
