Duration: 20 mins
Brief snapshot of discussion:
It was a dream session. Cannot still believe the things I said, the way I said them 😃 Was really happy with the performance of the group, and moreover my own performance in the group. Now I am a mechie. And the topic was on IT industry 😛 But as many know, I am sort of interested in the computer gadgets/technologies. So managed it well :mg: The group's behavior was top notch. With great points put by many. I consider my GD performance to be the main reason of the final verdict :mg:

PI

B:UDAY DAMODARAN (Link-XAVIER SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT)
C:MUNISH THAKUR (Link-XAVIER SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT)

D:VISHWA BALLABH(Link-XAVIER SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT)

Some words about the panel and its general behavior/conduct: They were great. Listened and understood each response well 😃 Was at ease during the whole interview

PI Questions:

Me: Good evening Sirs.

B: Have a seat

(Settled down and handed over my file to C)


B:
So Ayush, you must be on PaGalGuY?

Me: ( 😐 Taken aback by this first question) Yes, of course Sir. And very active too.
B: So what are the people saying about the interview process? How are the interview going on? What have they written about us??
Me: Sir, its been a mixed bag as usual. Some have reported Stress Interviews while some said that they had a chilled-out interview.

B:
Umm, sorry?? Which type of interview did you mention? (A and C smiling)
Me: (Effing awesome. What a start Ayush! 😐 :/ ) Oh sorry for my usage of words Sir. What I meant was Casual or carefree interview. I said chilled-out cause they had reported it in the same manner 😛

D:
So which type of interview do you want us to take now?
Me: (pause for 4-5 sec) Sir, one which I can convert 😃 :gm: ( :splat: )
(C grins, A smiles, D stares :sneaky: , and stares with a gaze capable of penetrating through armor steel :sneaky: )
Me:(Awesome once more!Continue with your witty answers!! Lets give this interview next year too :/ :mad: )
D: No, tell me. Which type of interview do you desire??
Me: (Activate partial damage control :w00t: ) Sir, I do not really have a choice to make. You can proceed as you desire. I will try and do well in the same 😃 . But if I HAD to choose, I would choose an interview where I get the time to express myself completely.
(D settles in his seat comfortably once more. Phew 😛 )

B:
You have an HR call too?
Me: Yes Sir.
B: So when is it? Tomorrow??
Me: No Sir, I had in the morning session today 😃

C:So you have been here since morning? You must have been tired till now.
Me: Not exactly tired Sir, but it was a lot of waiting. Cause my HR interview was one of the first interviews today morning and this one is the last for this evening.

B: You do not have any work-ex?
Me: Correct Sir
B: So, you are in your final year (trying and looking for my info in the sheets before him)
Me: No Sir, I am 2012 passout. Did not join the company I was placed in 😛
A: Why so??
Me:
Sir, I had 2 placements. One of them in Birla Tyres with a joining in August 2012 and another in Infy with a joining in July 2013. Being a mech student, my obvious choice was Birla. But I had to sign a 2 lacs bond for a period of 2 years. I was not willing for the same. See, I was adamant for joining a B-school. And I was confident that I would make it into one of my choices. Anyways, I would have had to break the bond sooner than later. Earning 1 lac in that period and giving back 2 lacs due to the bond did not seem a good decision to me, both logically and financially. And a 6-7 month work ex would anyways hold no importance in the admission processes. Also Sirs, this was not a decision taken hastily without any thought of the repercussions. I was aware that it might be possible that I do not get through to my dream institute. If that happens, I do have the Infy placement as a backup. A backup that I will not wish to use, both because I wish to convert this year itself and also because I do not wish to join a non-core company, but still it is a backup if everything else fails 😁


B: So what were you doing after completing your grads?
Me: MBA exam preps. 😐
B: You were preparing for MBA exams for the last 8 months!?
Me: :nono: No no no Sir. I started preps in July end. So I barely got 3 months of preps before CAT.
B: You joined any classes for this?
Me: Yes Sir, Career Launcher. CP branch

B: How do they teach for XAT?
Me: (Gave some gyaan 😛 :splat: Told how the system is basically set up for CAT preps and the harder levels (read XAT levels) come last. And half of the class disappears on those XAT sheet days 😛 Said that XAT is perceived as an astronomically hard paper by first timers usually. But ironically, I found it very easy this year. Also said that the XAT 2012 paper was too good to be true and that I am in love with XAT'12 :blush: )
(everyone nods)

B: (picks up my essay, reads the first para (I think) and then says) Do you write?
Me: Umm..? 😐
B: I mean, do you write for some publication or for yourself??
Me: 😲 :blush: :mg: No Sir. I try and avoid writing as much as I can :mg:
B: No, I asked cause you have a style of writing and use, what can we say, flowery language.

Me: Thank you Sir. And no, I do not write, but when I do, this is the usual way I do 😛

C: (Finally someone else :w00t: ) (Opens my file) "Destiny is not a matter of chance; It is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be achieved" (Thats the first line from my SOP 😛 On the first page of my file)
C: What is this?
Me: Sir, its a famous one-liner (2-liner actually 😛 )said by William Jennings Bryan. I really believe in these true lines and wish to follow them in my life, always.
(C continues flipping and looking through my documents. B continued)
B: (Continuing questions from my essay) You have used "It won't be a long shot to call....." in your essay. What does this phrase mean. I mean, it is grammatically completely correct and the usage is correct too. But how would you replace it with another set of easier words?
Me: (Kya??) Sir, "It wont be hard to call..?"
B: :nono: Na na. What does a long shot here mean?
C: Consider you have to throw a ball on a target that is 2 metres away from you. And then you have to hit the same when it is 20 metres away. Which one will yoiu be able to hit.
B: Depends upon the ability of the person :mg:
C: :facepalm: Consider a normal scenario?
Me: :embarrassed: The target that is closer.
C: And why is that?

Me: (Realizing where he is going and deciding to end this game, now) Because the other is a long shot.
C and B: Exactly :w00t:
Me: (-_- Umm...din I say the same thing?? 😛 )

A:
In your GD (finally!! A proper
question!) the group did not share your view about the animation industry coming under the IT sector umbrella. They were of the view that the animation industry comes under the Entertainment sector. You knew you were right, but still you did not try to correct your group mates. Why?
Me: Sir, I had made my point well. The group did not agree with that idea. But overall, at that point of time, the group was performing exceedingly well according to me. I did not wish to break up the flow of ideas at that moment. Anyways, the topic of discussion was on the Indian IT industry. I did not want to steer the group away from main topic by trying and asserting my correctness. Thought that it was unnecessary. So refrained from snapping back.
A: So, how would you defend your point?
Me: Sir, consider the Hollywood movie Avatar. Most of the special effects for it were done in India through the many animation companies. So the work was done for
another country's Entertainment industry. The revenue our Indian companies generated were completely for the IT services they provided. So it should be considered under IT sector.
A: You have seen Robot?
Me: Umm...
A: Robot, the south Indian Rajnikant blockbuster!
Me: Oh, that! I have seen parts of it, not the entire movie 😛
A: So, it had one of the most top notch special effects in Indian history. Which industry would you consider it in.
Me: Definitely the entertainment sector :mg:
A: Are you sure??
Me: Yes Sir, the money is generated through the movie. So entertainment industry it is :mg:
A: So you are telling me that there is a company X which when it works for a foreign film comes under the IT basket and when the same company works for an Indian movie, it is a part of the Entertainment industry??!!
Me: (He had completely had me. Got terribly confused)
A: Take your time 😃
Me: (After 5-10 secs) Sir, animation industry always comes under the IT sector as I explained before. For the last question, I got confused between the animation industry and production houses. So my answer is that if the special effect work is done by an animation industry, then it is under the IT sector; and if the editing is done in-house( (ie in the production houses itself), then it would come under the Entertainment sector.
A: (smiles) Good....

D:
Think and answer... (gave me a puzzle to solve, a relatively hard one. I had to choose a number in a number game. And at that moment, I knew nothing. Did not know where to start :splat: )
Me: (Trying to show that I am busy calculating in my mind. And actually in my mind I was like "F*ck F*ck F*ck! What do I do now! How do I get out of this!")
B: Have this piece of paper. (Hands it out...) You could show us how you are proceeding.
Me: (Calmed myself and did it logically. B even helped me at one point. Finally gave an answer which was out of range. And said that as I cannot choose the perfect answer, I would choose this.)[Later came to know that my answer was not entirely correct 😛 But I got away anyway :mg: ]

C: Sometimes, what we work out and find, is the wrong answer, and what our logic suggests, is the right one.

Me: (Now, believe me or not, I don't know why, but I got lost when this was being said to me. I did not know what I had been asked :splat: And I had no choice and I said: ) Umm...sir could you please repeat.
(Everyone burst out laughing. C repeated :splat: I said some good things on the same this time 😛 )

(Had some more good discussions. And then finally was asked to leave) (Got up, said my thank-yous and then...)

Me: Sirs, could I say something?
B: Sure..
Me: Sir I felt this thing in both my interviews today. I have been following the PG XL Interview thread this year and have read every interview of the past 3 years. And I every time I read them I feel extremely humbled. You people seem to be knowing everything about everything! Economics, I understand. But this phenomenon is also true for technical knowledge. And due to this I always am amazed. How do you manage this?? (
(Everyone grins :mg: D replies)
D: Your perceptions are based upon everyone's ignorance. The day you all realize that we do not know everything about everything, will be the one when this all will seem rather easy ( Now this truly was :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: worthy! )

(Then D stood up and escorted me till the door and smiled; and I left :mg: Mission Accomplished)



Your advice for future aspirants: Be calm 😃 Try and do your best, Aur jyada mat socho 😛 Sometimes, they are looking for answers; sometimes they are looking just at your approach and attitude towards it and also your reaction at difficult scenarios.

Verdict: Converted (Direct Convert) :gm: :mg: :gm: :mg: :gm: :mg: :gm:

Profile

Work profile (if applicable): 32 Months, Renewable Energy Sector.


Regarding GD/Group Exercise:

"Family owned shops can never be enterprises" was the topic. The topic was a little different and we took time to think about it. ( a minute or so ) I always had a strategy for GD. Pitch in at the right time - with a valid introduction, 2 times in the middle ( Logic + example) conclude in the end. so, 4 times with 2,3 sentences each time. We were asked to sum up the entire discussion in 3 lines. Kindly notice, don't add extra points to the GD. Just sum it up in 3 lines. The GD was a fish market at times but then, voice modulations by some helped to ease off the heat building up.

About the panel:

P1: A prof in cool kurta P2: Serios prof with spects ( I dunno why I get the P2 in spects and serious always) P3: A madam who stares very seriously !!

P2: Have your seat, Viswa tell me who is an I.A.S and what is his function?
(I noticed that they had my Essay with them, and our essay topic was "corruption is the root cause of economic slowdown in India". I mentioned about IAS in India unable to exercise powers etc. and Hence this question)
Me: Explained in detail about I.A.S officers and their functions ( am fond of Bureaucrats and their functions).
P2: So, do you think IAS officers are able to exercise their power? (again from essay)
Me:
An IAS would be very lucky if he could exercise his power without any obstruction. Politics in India restrains brilliant brains of the country.
P2: Can you name an IAS who suffered this ?
Me:
Named an IAS officer who resigned because of political pressure. Formed his party. Won the elections and is now developing his constituency. (3-5 minutes of discussions)
P2: How can you eliminate corruption from the country? (again essay)
Me:
Discussed the root cause of corruption and gave few ways of eliminating it. One being incentivized alarm raising.
P2: Any example you can state of stopping corruption through alarm raising?
Me:
Described the actions that led to arrest of governor of Illinois. ( they listened to me patiently for 2 mins)
P2: You seem to be interested in world politics, anyways how's your technical knowledge on solar plant? Describe the working of solar module with equation? ( my work ex is on solar, hence the question)
Me: explained a solar power plant. explained Photo-electric effect. Forgot the equations (though I knew it very well). Told the prof. Sir, I am sure I know the equation and it will pop up when I leave this room.
P2: (smiles) I am sure you know it. okay tell me the difference between thin film and crystalline modules ! which is better? (He was a very knowledgeable person. knew everything)
Me: Explained decently. (this time with diagrams and reasoning)
P2: Good. Can you tell me an innovative way of using solar power?
Me:
Told. (also explained the feasibility of the same)
P2: why cannot we place modules on wind turbine ? it can be a good solution ?
Me:
Told why is it not feasible with the existing technology, at the same time predicted the occurrence of the same with advancement of technology. ( P2 is done !! points to P3)
P3: (very very serious) Tell me 3 ways in which a business can fail ?
Me:
1. Talent Management ( P3 stops me and says "you've given your HR interview.... " i said yes. She says "leave your HR skills out of the room. Talk business !!)
HR mein bolein BM guy hai ! BM mein bolte HR :splat:
Me: (as I already decided I won't be deterred by any stress) gathered myself and gave 3 valid points. ( the prof was damn serious) !!
P3: examples?
Me:
Told ( P3 done ! points to the chilled prof.)
P1: Achilles-heel ! huh ! why so ? (my email id :-/)
Me:
There's a funny funda behind that Id and told it with no edits. ( P1,P2 smiled. P3 - serious)
P1: Okay, achilles, oh viswa ! (smiles) tell me if you are chief adviser of PM and you want to boost the solar power in India. what would you propose ? also, the policy will be introduced in parliament and should be approved by 2/3rds ?
Me:
Took a pause for (20-30sec, as there's already a very sound policy and he knew much of that.. I had to think of something new) Luckily got 2 brilliant ideas and the prof. was very impressed. (actually I myself was impressed by me :P, those were really good)
P1: why don't you suggest this to your company?
Me:
I am an engineer now, the day I become a manager my suggestions will be looked upon with a great respect. You know the corporates better sir.
P1,P2,P3 smile ! (finally) : okay ! we are done ! all the best for your future.

Length of interview: 20 minutes



Advice to aspirants: (already told above)
1. When you go to the venue, interact with others. Helps to avoid fish market in GD, and also you get rid off the pressure.
2. In GD don't be aggressive or submissive. Logic + Example (best way to drive GD) Let people speak. you score points on speaking + listening.
3. Be strong at fundamentals. No rocket science will be asked. Take note of things in your day to day life. ( remember slumdog millionare - life is like that)
4. In the interview don't fumble and don't be afraid. ( It's better to speak and have a chance than to keep silent and walk out)
5. The profs. don't have a pre-occupied notion on you. It depends on how you start / finish the interview.

Verdict:
Waitlist 47. ( Converted !! withdrew it ! as I wanted HRM and converted the same :-))

Regarding GD/Group Exercise:
GD/GE Topic: "How can indian politics be improved". 8 points were given and 2 columns. 1. Your rank 2. Group rank. We had to drive / convince the group to assign ranks (almost) same as our individual ranking. Decent discussion. Not a fish market at all. Spoke exactly 4 times with 2-3 sentences each time. Failed to reach consensus, but then quality of GD was good.

About the panel
P1.
An old prof with spects. P2. very serious prof P3. Young and chilled prof.

Interview:

entered the room and forgot to close the door :splat: ( prof. asked me to close the door without making sound... carefully closed it ).. wished three of them individually with a smile.

P2 : Take your seat and hand over the file to P1. ( Did that )
P2 : So, Viswa ! you're working in ****, as a design engineer ?
Me:
Yes, sir ! As a Solar design engineer ( I wanted to drive everyone into my strong area, and it worked)
P2: Oh ! solar, it's a very interesting field right?
Me :
Yes sir, considering the energy deficit our country is going through, there's a huge need for us to focus on alternative energy sources.
P2: Okay, tell me 5 uses of solar energy without taking a gap in between !
Me:
Told ! (luckily I didn't fumble and didn't repeat )
P2: Good ! but what is the most critical use of solar energy and the oldest one ?
Me:
Sir, most critical should be photosynthesis, ( Prof: why?) , because there would be no life on earth without photosynthesis. According to me it's the most crucial use of solar energy.
P2: Ofcourse, it is. But tell me the most ancient use ?
Me:
Sir, Leonardo Da vinci conceived the idea of solar water beds, which is present day solar water heater.
P2: No, No ! go back in TIME ! ( you need to pay attention to the words, there's a hint hidden in that line)
Me: Sir, To measure Time. I guess egyptians used sun dials long long ago.
P2: Perfect ! So, how does sun dial work and where can you find it in India ?
Me:
Told the funda ( actually I like carl sagan a lot and hence astronomy). It is in Jantar Mantar, they call it some Yantras. ( I was in delhi for a year and Jantar Mantar was the crux of all major happenings)
P3: Where is it ! and who built it ?
Me:
Sir, it is in Delhi, near connought place ( one more is in Jaipur ! I didn't mention that). Sir, I am weak at history, I don't know the name of the person who built it. ( prof : okay ! not a problem at all, history won't bother you much)
P1 (interferes): Viswa, why do you want to leave such good job and jump into something unknown ?
Me:
Sir, I have applied for HR only after going through the courses. Also, I have had an elective on HRM in my final semester ( Prof takes out the mark sheets and goes through them. HRM was the elective and I had a B in it :P)
P2: In what way do you think HR will be useful to your field ? what do you want to do when you are 40 ?
Me:
Sir, I have got great exposure, both technically and commercially, in my 2.5 years of nexus with this industry. All I need to learn now is about people and hence HRM.
P1: So, you want to start your own firm ?
Me:
Might be when I am 40. ( P2 smiles). And also HR syllabus has Social Entrepreneurship in the curriculum.
P2: So, you've gone through that ! explain the business plan, connection with HR and how would you achieve it, In details ?
Me:
Gave a 3-4 minutes analysis, relation with HRM and figures and stats of solar industry. (all P1, P2, P3 listened to me very keenly but P1 said "Oh ! He's a BM guy (twice)and asked if I had a BM call too. 😞 I guess to make me afraid)
P1: (again stresses) why do you want to leave this good job and get into this social things. you already are impacting the society with your work?
Me:
Gave strong and valid reason about the direct impact and indirect impact on the society. Prof. was convinced and acknowledged.
P1: As you have taken HRM as elective, can you explain the HR mechanisms?
Me:
(read about HR for 3-4 hours the day before). Sir, do you mean HR scorecard. ( He said, okay 1, tell me more...) Sir, Nurturing Leadership..

P1: it's not mechanism, okay tell me can leadership be nurtured or is it in born ?
Me:
( took 10 sec to think and then started with perfect framework) Gave 2 examples. 1 of in born 1 of inspired leadership.

P2: okay, there's a high level manager in the company and a recently joined typist. The typist alleged that manager harassed her sexually. what will you do?
Me:
(Too much discussion for 4-5 minutes. I used some good terminologies of HR, quoted some good names and procedures. Convinced them)
P3: (spoke after loooong time) Are you familiar with Integration ? Definite and Indefinite? explain the difference !
Me:
Yes sir. ( gave the funda of definite and indefinite integrals)
P3: Can you give a practical example of definite and indefinite integrals?
Me:
(luckily I use integration in my work life) Told how I use integration for estimating the energy output from solar plant.
P3: okay solve this problem! ( writes integral of x^ndx. on the sheet and asks me to solve it both in definite and indefinite form)
Me
: Solved (easiest integral i guess :P, but then It's XLRI prof.s sitting there. If it's very easy in the beginning expect something strong coming behind)
P3: Why does this constant "c" come in indefinite integral?
Me:
(thought for 10-15 sec). Sir, arbitrary constant to eliminate any errors? ( He nods ! and says think a bit more.. I again think for 5 sec.) sir, actually sir,(the first time I fumbled in the entire interview) for an indefinite integral there might be many solutions and to eliminate......(interrupts me)
P3: okay ! leave that. Tell me the practical significance of this constant "c"?
Me:
Sir, it's been 5 odd years I have touched Indefinite integrals. Also in my job the use of integration is minimal that too only definite. I am afraid but I can't answer this question and also cant take a guess as it is a conceptual one.
P3: (smiles)..okay I am done. anything else ? P1 , P2 ?
P1, P2 : we are done ! Thank you. Please close the door after you leave.

Took my file. Gave a smile. Thanked all and left.

If people are idle enough to refresh XLRI's site every 10 minutes , be on PG the whole day , then photoshopping is much better.. PS - Read this --- http://www.pagalguy.com/news/b-schools-mulling-over-cancelling-placements-inside-story-a-29623 ...

Absolutely fake this pic is , there isnt a mention of "Admission open for PGCBM / PGCHRM" on the link above , secondly Admission open for Global MBA shouldnt be there , as its registration is closed , as seen on XL website right now , thirdly this clearly looks a photoshopeed version of the snapshot taken before 29 march , i dont remember but I dont think XLRI kept the link open til 29 april on their site once registration closed
Ofcourse it's fake . Ever heard of April Fool ??
