Interview Experience
Every one started very fiercely with the GD trying to prove their point right. I gave my points stating the short run outcome and long run outcome and therefore speaking initially for the motion and then against it. the game changer in GD round was the end of the GD where they asked me to give a short summary of the gd. ( this generally means that the jury felt that you have not spoken much and want to listen more to you so that a decision can be made.) after my turn their was another candidate which was asked to sum up the g.d to which in turn I replied taking the jury's permission and I concluded in the G.D.
Interview Tips
So GDs are the most tricky rounds in a recruitment process because you don't know what the recruiter is looking for in the candidate their. try to come in the limelight for the right reasons.   I was selected for the job directly from the GD round.

      Funny Moments
      there were 40 people who sit for the GD round . 8 got through for the next round ( my name was not there. ) which was a PI. all my good friends made It to that list of 8 people and then only two were selected out of those 8. the day ended , recruiters went back home and sent a list of three candidates which had the name of 2 selected candidates and my name which were selected for the final interview with the partner, it was funny how none of my best frds could not make it even after giving 2 more interviews than me . :p
