I want to suggest you that dont give answers as one line.. Just explain it thoroughly with better examples by which you can impress him. By this u can consume much time which lets him to ask few questions. Maintain i to i contact. This is more imp. Tell the answers confidently.. If you dont know any ans just claim that "I dont know" or "I am unable to recollect"..
This round is mainly to check your confidence.. Here also the first Question will be "Tell me abt ur self". Tell atleast one interesting thing which comes under ur hobbies and know about it, becoz he wil be asking 1 or 2 quest's on it.. I told one hobby ie 'Investing on mutual funds.' He asked some questions on it. And also he explained me about stock exchanges for around 8 minutes..
Then, I was asked to tell about TCS
-> For this question plz dont mugup all the things that are given in About Us page of TCS site..
Just keep 2 to 3 things which you feel easy in ur mind and explain them by just lifting the company by your words..
