VENUE: Gurgaon
Slot: 2:00 pm
Panel Number: 5

GD Details:
Topic: In reality is work-life balance a misnormer?
Number of People present: 6
Time: 10 mins
Brief Snapshot of Discussion:
Some guys heard the topic as "reality is work-life balance a misnormer", and some other were not sure of it, so intro was not great, after that everybody spoke almost equally, no fish market, very peaceful, but after few mins we didnt had much new points, so the moderators asked to conclude individually in a random manner.
Other Salient Details: No summary had to be returned.

PI Details:
Panel Members Intro: 3 members, one quite casual in questioning (let P1), other 2 a bit serious (let P2 n P3)

Questions:

Me: (photo on my form was in t-shirt) sir, filled my form yesterday in the midnight, had this photo only, so pasted it, sorry for that.

P2: how cud u make out that direction was great?
