Hi ,
Can some one tell me the link where I can post a query of mine regarding IIT R.

Actually I have got a call for the GD/PI. I have an afternoon slot on 20th. Is there an option so that outstation candidates like me be provided some accomodation (in hostel or else) if I reach there on the 19 th FEb.

THanks

part 2 ....

O : Name a famous trichologist
I: Javed Habeeb
H: Tell us more about Habeeb
I: answered (had read an article about Habeeb in Sunday Times last yr!)
Panel ws very impressed!:D
H: OK..comment on your hairstyle!!!
I : :shocked:gave a very witty answer again...
O : (wid a smile) very clever...
H: Diff b/w a plant and a tree?
I:answered
L:does every plant grows to become a tree?
I:answered
O: ok..tel us diff types of plants!
I : (wid a smile) sir,there are herbs,shrubs and many other types of plants..but since m not a student of botany,wud like to answer
ur ques slight differently...apart frm biological plants..there r plants like oil plants,steel plants etc.
The panel ws highly impressed ( O even said - Wah!:D)

H:Wat is a spa?
I:answered
L: ok..which sector does it belong to,Healthcare or Hospitality?
I:Ma'm ..m not 100% sure but it can belong to either
O:Justify how..
I:answered wid examples ( d panel ws convinced)
H: ok..now,listen carefully,think and dn answer
I: sure sir
H: He talked about science for a gud 1min..dn concluded dat science is destructive.Then,he talked abt Religion and finally talked abt Art
(I ws wondering wats d ques and whn d story wil end! :smile:)
H: ok..here i finish..now u comment on watever i spoke..if possible relate dem wid examples!
I: (thought for 10-15 sec) then replied in a very structered manner
1st i talked abt science...told dem dat everything has 2 sides-pros and cons..gave examples...dn I talked abt religion and related it wid science
(religion is identified by faith and in science also,every invention or technological advancement starts wid a hypothesis and until & unless 1 has faith in it,
one cant progress..blah blah)
similarly..talked abt Art and again related it wid science(Art means creativity,thinking out of d box...our world wud hav become stagnant if we didnt think out of d box and made so many things pos...blah blah )
Finally,i concluded by saying dat Science is both an art and religion and its not science which is destructive..its human brain which misuses the power
of science!
Now..dis time the panel literally applauded me

(to b contd...)

@swarnali-ur interview went really well...infact awesome!!

IITR GD/PI exp :


Had my GD/PI on 17th Feb...I'm from Mumbai...reached Delhi on 15th night,stayed at my cousin's house for a night...took a Jan-Shatabdi to Roorkee on the next day...I enjoyed that train journey immensely..my first ever in N.India..reached Roorkee on 16th night..A friend of mine who studied at IITR had come to pick me up at Roorkee station..Went to IITR by cycle-rickshaw(another first for me)..Was allotted a room in a boys' hostel named Jawahar Bhavan...Got my room changed coz it did not have any furniture inside it..Had dinner from the mess...Later that night, seniors informed me that my slot was to be at 1 pm the next day..Spent the rest of the night chatting away with the other GD/PI guys..Took a tour of the beautiful campus on the next morning...reached the DoMs building at 1 pm..Process started at 1.30..Started off with a ppt...I had my interview first..Was slotted in the panel containing the HoD..was nervous but some pep-talk by seniors helped me cooling my nerves


PI:
A panel of 3 : Lady (L), Old Prof (O) , HOD (H), Me(M)


L: So you live in Mumbai...where in Mumbai?
M: Told
L: Navi Mumbai is close by, right? Why was Navi Mumbai developed in the first place?
M: Told about infra overload on Mumbai..threw in other examples like Delhi-NOIDA as well
L: Y Management?
M: Told something about how workex inspired me and blah-blah
O: Tell me about your company?
M: French MNC, size..bragged a little
O: Tell me about the MNS issue
M: Gave him a balanced view...the usual bakwas about infra, political ambitions, employment etc
L: Hobbies?
M: Told
L: What kind of poems do you write & when?
M: Told..nature, dark thoughts,blah-blah


(All of a sudden HOD breaks in)
H: Tell me the connection between Sanjay Dutt & Leander Paes?
M(took only a fraction of a sec to answer) : Rhea Pillai


(All of them start laughing...they refuse to stop)
H: That was outstandingly quick!
M: :happy:
H: Why have you come here with such a good rank? Just for rehearsal??

M: No...Tried to defend myself :redface:

H: Will you take up IITR at all? :angry:

M: My first pref is XYZ coll but I place all the others on an equal keel...blah
H: I am 100% sure you won't take up IITR
M: Sir, no...gyaan
H: Compare IIT Kgp & IITM...Y do ppl prefer IITM nowadays?
M: Balanced answer...equal keel ka bakwaas again!! Forgot to answer the second part though
H: OK...Thank you...You may leave
M: Thank you!!


Good PI on the whole

GD:
A group of 8 with 8 minutes to discuss plus 2 mins to think. A person was asked to pick up an envelope from among on th many lying on the panel's( a panel of 4) table. Guy picks it up, reads the two topics:
Death Of Socialism
Scientists should not join politics
Group was asked to pick up one topic..settled for the latter.. Not too fruitful discussion with the same points being repeated over & over again..Not at all chaotic..Ppl talked about primary responsibility of politicians, scientist-politicians in China..I made only 2 decent entries...Panel asked us to summarize...One guy started of ...pathetic summary...I tried to join in...not very successful...Overall a very average GD


Was very hopeful of converting due to my high rank..Turned out so...Ended up with an overall merit rank of 14!!...Special thanks to all the Roorkee seniors...Arpit, Manas, Sameer, Abhishek..You ppl are really special...Did not come across such hospitality & encouraging pep-talk in any other insti's GD/PI

At IITK, we were told, the process (and therefore/hence/also) the results will be independent of each other. Apparently last year they were delayed/declared together because of the reservation controversy. What's your take on this?


For sure last yr the results were declared cos of the reservation controversy.... but our knowledge is as good as urs in the matter of declaration of results... so all of u will have to wait till we get any intimation from the IITR central committee upon the declaration of the results
