It began with an essay writing and the topic was 'All fools and fanatics are so certain about themselves but wise people always think so much'.(Time given : 20 mins,2-3 pages)

Panelist: 3 male Profs(one of them was an electronics engineer i guess as he asked electronics questions to everyone).

My interview began again with the eternal question of tell me about your origin and they tried to link me in every way with Gujarat.
Q.Tell me about yourself.
