can u please tell me what all is written in the paragraph? i am busy

i have an interview day after tommorow please reply fast

hi!

I had my GD/PI on 26th FEB 3:00 PM slot at ISI Delhi.

ISI Delhi is not exactly on lodhi road; you have to travel 100 metre extra.. thoda andar jaa ke hai.. near mandir.
The nirma GD/PI is taking place on the 4th floor.

I reached early ( 1:00 ) and met the 12:30 batch wala bacha log..



questions in PI--


1. ACADEMICS-- stress here.. 3 panels..out of which 2 panels concentrating highly on acads.. (my panel didnt lay that much stress coz none had an engg. background)


2. GENERAL AWARENESS-- how many districts in your state? Governor? state ministers? Current affairs.

This is what i got out of the my and other peeps experience.


At 3:00 we were called for the GD.. panel wise.
each panel had a capacity of 11 people max.
We were given a paper containing our topic name and space to write below.

My topic was--- 'scientists are not believers of GOD'
Do you agree with this statement?

other topics included 'relevance of democracy' etc etc..

here is GD procedure--


1. 2 minutes to think

2. 1 minute each to give your views

3. 10 minutes of discussion

4. 1 minute each to conclude


my experience--

I went blank for 1min after reading my topic.. but i supposed everyone will be a bit disturbed.. 😉 So i picked up my thoughts and thought out some cool points.

I was no. 9... everyone before me said Scientists are non-believers... I gave the opinion that they are infact believers.. what is GOD?.. personal opinion.. examples.. unknown.. theories.. etc.

Anyways at the end of the GD almost everyone agreed with my points .. i spoke often and was not much of a fish market.. At the end,my conclusion hardly changed whereas everyone else modified it towards my points. So a good GD.. i was convincing.

PI.. we were the lucky batch whose panel was more interested in the 'humane' side rather than 'academic' side.

Here is my experience--

3 guys.. fair short guy.. dark moustache specks guy.. and B & W beard guy

FSG,DMS and BWB--

in red-- my thought process
I gave my SOP ( remember to write your name and form no. on it ), CAT score card copy and CAT ADMIT CARD Copy ( dont forget this!! its not mentioned but they ask for it!! )

BWB-- Hi, i am curious about your name
me-- blah blah ( cracked a joke how only a few peeps are able to prononounce it right )
smiles all around
FSG-- Why do you want to do an MBA?
me-- prepared answer
BWB-- ahh.. we are not familiar with your domain (engg.) ( THANK GOD!!! ) so tell me the difference between plasma and LCD
me-- explained
DMS-- this guy only asked academic questions!! Tell me modes of communication
me-- wired,wireless
DMS-- no no.. pager,mobile.. you understand?
me-- sir in that case Landline,satellite,cellular
DMS-- no no no.. you are not getting me.. 1 way..
me-- YES SIR YES SIR! simplex,half duplex and full duplex.. explained all with examples.
DMS-- AND and NOR gates
me-- gave the truth tables.
Academics 100% accuracy.. thank god they didnt have a tech background
BWB-- ah.. so you read! interesting.. what all do you read?
me-- Jeffery archer,PG woodie,Agatha Christie etc etc.. completed a john Grisham yesterday.
questions went on on this topic.. at end--

BWB-- you have read Kane and Abel?
me-- YES SIR YES SIR!!
BWB-- what is central theme of jeffery?
me-- explained

BWB seemed very happy

BWB-- so you write too?
me-- told.
BWB-- what else do you read?
me-- magazines,papers
BWB-- what sort of magazines?
me-- India today,outlook, international magazines like TIME,NEWSWEEK.
FSG-- You know about US prez elections?
me-- YES YES YES.. ao.. pucho! Thankyou! Explained it alllll.
FSG-- whats your opinion? whose your choice?Obama or Hillary?
me-- Obama ... gave them strong reasons.. everyone nooded in agreement and we all collectively sneered at Hillary.
BWB-- Thankyou Dhruv..

everyone seemd pleased...
thats it.. over!

I think i did pretty well..GD went my way,academics i breezed through, novels and World issues ( thankyou panelists! )..


All the best to everyone else.. hope this helped!

Hi

Are you a fresher or with work exp..
any idea if they are going into academics with work ex ppl as well

All the best..

Cheers
Diva

I am a fresher.. and yes.. they are digging deep into academics even with Work ex peeps.

I dont mean to scare you but there was a girl with 20months work ex from WIPRO.. and she was grilled on acads.. she had an IT background but the panelist had 27yrs in electronics and he asked about electronics!! Though this may be a one-off case.. yes Those with work ex were definetly asked about Acads
:)

HI Puys.

Had my GD/PI on 27th in ISI, New Delhi on 27th Feb , 3:00 PM Batch.
My intro:
Electronics Engg(2005 batch)
IT Experience (2.5 yrs)
Banking and Insurance Projects in company
My encounter wid NIRMA
didnt know exactly where the instt was so reached quite early after getting out of office at 1.(anyways have a couple of more interviews in ISI so needed to check out the directions!!!)
the Building has 4 floors, and yesterday each of the floors were being used one institute for their interviews:nervous:. NIRMA was on the fourth floor. roamed about the neighborhood for some time and then went in at 15 mins to 3.
Found that the interview process for the 12:45 batch was still goin on , rather it seemed that they will go on for quite some time.:angry:
Found some puys out there, made some frens in general and found the type of ques they were asking.
and finally at about 3:40 they started calling out for our batch.
me was in the 1st panel, in our batch we had a girl who was late for the earlier batch. and our original batch of 10 had 3 absentees, so in total we had 8 ppl (6guys, 2girls). our panel had three members (2 profs and 1 alumini)
after being ushered in the GD room, we were given sheets with the GD topic, we were supposed to write our points in the sheet and later on return the sheet:whatthat: mentioning our particulars.
the topic given to us was "Success is all about Human Relations".we were supposed to state our points individually for a minute each. and then the discussion was open. the topic wasnt the best one to discuss. though we weer trying, and in between the panelists plugs in saying that do we exactly know what the topic is and should he repeat the topic. (i thought what exactly did he mean, as it didnt seem that we deviated form the topic). anyways had an average GD, made 2-3 entries, wasnt very difficult to make an entry as it was cool GD. and as much as i heard most GDs were quite cool. so dont worry about fish markets. after the GD we were given 30 secs each to again say our views and not summarize. (one girl was admonished as she was trying to summarize)
then we were asked to come for the interview in the sequence of our numbers.
i was 6 , so had a decent time lag to know to what type of questions my panel was asking.:grin:
The Grill
the panelists:
Prof1, Prof2, AL (in the order of sitting)
(Prof2 was the one who had scolded the group and the girl in the GD)
P2: thats an odd name, what does it mean
me:.....
AL: (gets into the discussion about the meaning)
P2: Makes a comment about my pathetic QA scores, but he moves the score card to P1 rather than asking a ques, which i was prepared to defend :huh:
P2: tell me abt urself
me....., when i get to the company that i work in,
P2: what does ur company deal in?
me:....
P2: how long have you been working?
me. 2.5 yrs
P2: wats ur salary?
me ....
P2: are you ready to risk everything then?
me blah blah..
P2: he asks about the client
me....(the main business is Insurance), he points to AL
AL: asks how does insurance work, premium calculated, how does the market work
me: only didnt know hw exactly premium calculated but told the dynamics
P2: who is the Foreign Minister and Minister of defence?
me: pranab mukherjee and AKAnthony
P1: what are your interests?
me : reading and travelling
P1: askes about the acheivements which was mentioned in the form
me:....
P2: thanks

the interview was cool as such, but dont think it was great. anways , if u have any questions go on and shoot.....

Hi SAUTIK

The topic given to you all "success is all about human relationships" seems quite vague.
Can u please tell me as to what all did you discuss relating to it and where do u think the grouped digressed.
Thanks........

It was much better than wat i and a few other fellows xpected.

guys...what to make of it?

Hi puys

heres my pathetic experience..

GD : is china a threat to the indian economy?

a good and satisfying gd..no fish maket..

u all must be knowing the rules of the gd so i need not post it again..

now the pi

3 professors p1,p2,p3 n me

p2: what is field of interest in yr btech(electonics and comm,fresher)?
me: vlsi since i have am working in this field for the last 2 sem.
p2: good..tell me what is nanotechnology ? ( i wondered since when did vlsi started meaning nanotechnology)
me: gave the ans.
p2: tell me 1 application of nanotech.
me: in aircraft wings to make them lighter and increase efficiency.
p2: can we use carbon in place of silicon in vlsi?
me: no
p2: why
me: it has not been tested to see whether it has prop which si provides.
p2: is it coz of etching?
me: yes since we dont work o sizes as small as carbon fibres at the moment.
p2: i am talking abt the future. (i asked myself whether i am responsible for what happens in the future)
me: yes sir,its possible.
p2:tell me something else which i should ask u
me: i do programming for embedded systems
p2: which languages do u have for this?
me: vhdl and verilog which is a verification language.
now the most ridiculous ques i have heard in my life..deserves a big laugh

p2: can we use html and xml in place of vhdl/verilog
me: no sir since they are not hardware description languages
p2: but isnt it good if its possible.suppose i am in newdelhi and want to put on an ac in mumbai using an embedded system,isnt it good if html is used since it will be a hardware independent language
me: (wondered what the hell was he asking, i thought he had gone crazy..how d hell can he program a hardware in a hardware independent language)..
i said yes sir it will be good since it will make the system portable.

p2: i am talking abt the future
me: yes sir.its possible in the future (i guess he was more interested in the future than present).

p1: what do u do in spare time?
me: earlier i used to play too but now i just watch cricket in spare time.
p1: do u watch ckt in yr spare time or when theres a match?
me: when there is a match going on in my spare time,i watch it.

smiles..

p1: which np do u read?
me: the hindu
p1: what are the headlines today?
me: gave the ans.
p1: how many editions are there for hindu?
me: dont know sir
p1: how many editions are there for TOI?
me: dont know sir
p1: whats the diff in the no. of editions of HINDU and TOI?
me: (he should have got the ans with my earlier two replies but i guess he wasnt intelligent enough)
i said i dont know all this sir.

p3: tell me 2 companies each under anil ambani and mukesh ambani
me: gave the ans
p3: 1 more
me: (couldnot recollect coz of the rubbish newspaper questions earlier by p2.)
p3: whats nifty
me: national stock exchange
p3: what is the diff between nse and nifty
me: its the index of nse.
p3: what is sensex then
me: sensitive index,30 stocks
p3: which two banks have entered into a merger recently
me: dont know sir.

that was it..i guess a useless pi..made even more useless with the type of ques asked..

pls give yr opinion..
