I: thank u sir.
Intvr: hmm.

It was a just a journey of only 8 to 10 mnts. Intrvwrs were cool & they were come to take students. But the levels were varied from panel to panel, some panels were tough. one panel asked my friend "why r u doing m.tech, for not getting job in b.tech?", which companies u attened at that time?, why tcs rejected u?, why satyam rejected u? etc. etc. and that frnd could not cross the intv. Though I was also not selected initially, but got my name at last from the bunch of b.tech students(it was a grt mistake!).
