22) Ok Praveen...do u have any questions?
I was actually waiting for this chance..since I sensed that one of the 2 was a really tech guy, n since I was an ece student (actually passed out student) I asked them abt one of their technology....they both had a really big smile...

After some nail biting moments..one of the employee told me tht I have one more round to go
They called me in..there was a single lady HR
She asked some details abt me, my family which she noted down in a paper as I told
She asked wht was I doing all these 5 months, after I finished my degree (same answer)
