My reporting time is 9.00 am
I reached there at 8.30 am. but in a hurry I skipped the break fast.
I anticipated that there will be a canteen near the venue, but my fate
there is no canteen.
Oops..! I felt sorry for myself and entered the venue.
we were directed straight away to the verification hall.
There were 8 panels.
As Iam almost to collapse with the lack of tiffin.
To my luck we were served "good day" biscuit packets and a cup of tea.
I got verified my certificates and told to wait for the interview
we (candidates) had a small chit chat too to releave pressure.
