M2: All of them start from SDR basket inclusion…

Me: Then I told him the positive effects of Yuan’s inclusion in SDR basket on Indian Economy … negative effect that Yuan’s devaluation will have … Fiscal deficit .. Definition and then relating it to the gold scheme … (How decreasing gold imports could improve fiscal deficit if this scheme works properly) …  (But I really did it quick … I just gave direct important points … direct answers)

M2: You are a good candidate… confident, loud and Bold Voice…

During the whole Interview no one else asked questions except M2. Interview lasted for about 10 minutes. M1 was going to ask something but his question was interrupted by M2 somewhere between the interview. Overall I don’t know how my interview went. Because they didn’t ask me questions and that’s what is worrying me.

They offered me a drink of Apple Juice. Although I politely tried to deny it 2-3 times but M4 insisted to take it. It’s an energiser …: P.

I drank it in one shot. They were smiling :P)
