DETAILED WAY TO APPROACH 

The volumes of two vessels, which are filled up to the brim by milk of different prices, are 220 L and 180 L. An equal amount of milk is taken out from each of the two vessels, and the milk taken out from the first vessel is poured into the second vessel while the milk taken out from the second vessel is poured into the first vessel. If the price per liter of milk in both the vessels becomes the same eventually, find the volume of milk taken out from each of the two vessels.

A journey that started mid-2012 when I was in awe of all the gods on PG such as ravi.tejapalla, rooney575 to name a few. I wasn't active but did see their scores and dreamt of achieving them one day. CAT that year didn't go as per planned and as expected, no calls from the old IIMs.

Decided against taking the feline next year to build a bit of work-ex and came back on PG last year. The last few months before CAT were a great experience with discussions about the questions and the new format, posting of scores on mock threads and what not, simply competing for the best with the best.

I would like to keep it short here because everything would be incomplete without posting the one interview experience which is still pending. So here it goes:


IIM Ahmedabad

3rd March, Morning slot

Venue : IIFT Delhi

1st in the panel, yet again!

WAT: The case was related to Bharat Ratna being awarded posthumously. We had to write both for and against it

Prep: 2/5; Performance: 3/5

After WAT ended, P1 told everybody in our panel to come down in front of the interview room positively after a gap of (just) 20 minutes. On hearing that, tension rose to its peak...the dreaded short A interview - just what I had wanted to avoid!  

Panel 2, 2 profs. P1: young prof, P2: old prof

P1 called me in.

(I didn't have either my certificates neither there was any pad on the table....could have been easier to explain in a few cases)

P1: Please sit down. So, you work with the Tatas?

Me: Yes Sir. Talked about a bit of my work at Jsr and then Odisha.

P1: (Looking at the form) So, you have been working for the last 1.5 years?

Me: Sir, 21 months, I joined in July 2013

P2: (Looking at the form) You have written 42 people work under you, and 5 with you...

Me: Actually sir, 5 report to me and 42 is the total strength in my department

P2: Working in a steel plant, people reporting to you must be quite older than you? Do they listen to you?

Me: Yes sir, asst. managers reporting to me have a lot more experience than me but I take this opportunity to learn a lot from them...cut in between

P1: Asst. manager? So, you being the manager don't you think you will have trouble adjusting with your peers at college who might be fresh out of college and those with work ex might not have reached the post of manager?

Me: Sir, actually manager is the entry-level position in Tata Steel. I would be at the same level at others, no problem at all.

P2: The asst. managers will not accept everything you say. How do you deal with that?

Me: Sir, the last 1 year in Odisha has been a great learning experience. Rather than instructing them on everything, I take their advice on majority of the issues..they having hands-on-experience of running a blast furnace for over 20 years. I go on site visits with them and ask for explanation from them regarding the intricacies in the different sections of the BF.

P2 finally seemed satisfied.

P1: As a manager, when you are not instructing the people who report to you on many occasions how do you decide on the appraisals?

Me: (was a tricky question but tried to dodge it) Sir, appraisals are given only by senior managers or heads, managers are not eligible to do so.

P1: (changing the topic) You must have seen "sariya" (TMT rebars) being advertised on TV? What are exactly these products?

Me: Explained the technical details about rebars.

P1: These advertisements are done by Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan and other famous personalities. Why is it so?

Me: Sir, that is because people identify with these people more. Now if the chief of our department comes and advertises, the advertisement would be a big failure.

P1: But Tata Steel doesn't seem to advertise their products on TV?

Me: Sir, that is due to Tata Steel running a B2B business in case of rebars rather than B2C

Uptil now everything was peaceful, but as soon as I said this P1's eyes lit up...that happens, you are in trouble  

P1: Okay, so which has a higher margin? B2B or B2C?

Me: (phas gaya  ) Sir, could I have a few seconds to think?

P1, P2 : Sure

Me: Sir, considering only advertising keeping all other things constant B2B should have a higher margin. (my answer was wrong but P1 continued remaining poker-faced)

P1: I think I actually asked which type of business' product's price will be lower? 

(Awkward silence...I suppose P1 then realised he had asked about "margin")

P1: Okay, leave the previous question, just answer this. You must be knowing about selling in bulk... (the jail-free card I was looking for)

Me: Yes sir, in B2B selling is in bulk, so the prices are lower.

P2: You said advertising is not necessary in case of rebars, so how will a person like me decide what to use while building a house?

Me: (was not confident about this) Sir, while building a house the responsibility is with the builder to use the right material or he will be under trouble later. For a person like you and me, it's not important as to which material we are using as long as our house doesn't collapse.

P1 and P2 smiled and thought ab bakre ko jane dete hain.

P1: What do you do in your free time?

Me: Sir, I like blogging about F1 and singing, having been trained in music.

P2: What is the difference between Hindustani Classical Music and Carnatic Music?

Me: Listed 3 differences

P2 looked towards P1. P2: We are done. You may leave

I was getting up, then P2 : Siddhartha, take a toffee or cookie.

On reaching for the bowl, P2: (Smiling) Take as many as you want.

Me: (smiling sheepishly) Sir, I will just have one.

I thanked them and then closed the door in the quietest way I have ever done in my life  

Coming out of the room, the only thing that I kept thinking about was the smile in the end. What did it mean? What probably it could have meant?

After one month of tearing my hear out over it, I finally got my answer on the 16th of April 

I would always try and comeback and help future feline-hunters whenever they need it. This community has just given me so much. 

You care, you dare and you share - something I have learnt and felt represents the entire PG community.

I hope everybody reached the end  , so here's passing on the baton to the soon-to-be-formed Dream Team and Underdogs Team 2015  

Signing off,

Siddhartha Biswas
