There were two interviewer in my panel. The whole thing was like this ---
Me : May I come in sir ?
NIIT : Yes, come in. Sit down please. Give me your C.V ........ What is the meaning of your name ?
Me : I said.
NIIT : Give your self-introduction with your family background and hobbies.
Me : I mentioned that I am a guy from a simple middle class family.
NIIT : Why are u describing yourself as a guy from SIMPLE MIDDLE CLASS family ?
Me : I said that my dad,s earning is within that range.
NIIT : So will you consider your family as rich when your earning adds to your dad,s one ?
Me : No. I will like to call myself a guy from an upper middle class family.
NIIT : So earning is the only indicator to decide the class of the family ?
Me : In this case I am considering so .
Me : In my self-introduction I mentioned Chatting and Magic Item Collection as my hobbies.
NIIT : What are the kinds of magic you have collected so far ?
Me : Lots, from coin tricks to card magic. May I show you one sir ?
NIIT : Sure.
Me : I showed them a coin trick.
NIIT : hmm. You are a guy from E.C.E. But you are switching to software industry. Why ? Tell me from the core of your heart.
Me : I like C more than Analog Communication.
NIIT : You like C ? Why so ?
Me : I am fascinated about it. I try to think of every problem in C. I had Computer Science in +2. I wrote the KBC program for fun.
NIIT : So I can ask you questions from C ?
Me : Up to File and Structure.
NIIT : That,s enough. What is the difference between Structure and Array ?
Me : I explained it with diagram.
NIIT : Ok. Suppose I have put your name in a character array. Now you have to reverse it within it without using any other array. How will you do it ? Write the whole program.
Me : Can I use the string reverse function.
NIIT : No.
Me : I wrote the program.
NIIT : Try to reduce the complexity of the program.
Me : Can I say the logic only ?
NIIT : Sure.

NIIT : Ok. Now tell me the difference between ,value passing, and ,address passing, of a variable as the argument of a function. What will be the effect if we do it at the time of ,swapping, ?
Me : I said.
NIIT : hmm. In your career objective you have described yourself as ,a computer lover with an electronics & communication background,. Why you are demanding that you are a COMPUTER LOVER ?
