PREPARED 4 GD. CHECK THIS SITE 4

BUT THEY HAVE SHOCKED ALL OF US BY CONDCTING BOTH GD AND INTRVIEW ON SAME DAY

AND WINDED UP SOON. SO, ONCE U GET SELECTED 4 WRITEN. BE PREPARED 4 EVERY THING BY

NEXT DAY.

COMING 2 GD

OUR TOPIC WS “SOLUTION 2 TERRORISM IN INDIA”

ALL OF THE MEMBERS SEEMED 2 BE CLEVER THAN ME. AT THE BEGINNING, I THOUGHT THAT I

MAYNOT COMPETE WITH THEM. AS, WE WENT FIRST B4 PANEL MEMBERS, WE INTRODUCED

OURSELVES 2 EACH OTHER. NOW ENVIRONMENT WAS FRIENDLY. WE EVEN HAVE HAD PUT OFF ALL

THE FANS, SO THAT WE ALL WOULD BE AUDIBLE ENOUGH.

I STARTED 2 TAKE INITIATIVE, BUT B4 I COMPLETE 4 OR 5 WORDS, OTHER GUY TOOK CHANCE

COMPLETELY. AS HIS POINT WAS GOOD, I ALLOWED HIM. AND MY + POINT WAS, THOUGH HE

INTERRUPTD ME, I LISTENED HIS SPEECH INTERESTINGLY AND MAINTAINED GOOD EYE

CONTACT. AS THERE WERE MORE GUYS THAN GALS, OTHER GUYS WHO WERE VERY SHARP TOOK

OVER AND THEY WERE GOING ON DISCUSSING. I SUPPORTED ALL OF THEM A LOT, BY TRYING 2

COMPLETE THEIR SENTENCES, WITH PROPER WORDS. AND BOCZ, I WAS SUPPORTG, THEY ALL HAVE

MAINTAINED EYE CONTACT MORE WITH ME (WHICH WAS MY + PT.).

I TRIED 2 INCREASE MY VOLUME. BUT I COULDN't REACH THOSE LOUD VOICES OF DUDES. THERE

WERE FEW MINUTES WHEN IT

WAS FULL OF FUSS N CHAOS ALL AROUND.

BUT WHEN I GOT CHANCE N SAID, THEY ALL COOPERATED WITH ME. CZ AT TIMES I DIDN't

INTERRUPT THEM. SO PLEASE DON't INTERRUPT OTHERS, INSTEAD U B SUPPORTING N GRAB

A CHANCE.

I SAID 1ST POINT AS? ALL THE COUNTRIES SHOULD JOIN HANDS 2 FIGHT AGAINST TERRORISM

INSTEAD OF FIGHTING WITH IN THEMSELVES.

AGAIN THEY STARTED N THEIR POINTS WERE ALSO GOOD. SUDDENLY, PANEL PERSON HAS

INTERRUPTED ALL OF US AND SAID? U ARE JUST DISCUSSING ABOUT TERRORISM AND NOT

ABOUT SOLUTIONS? THEN ALL MADE UP THEIR MIND AND DISCUSSED ABOUT SOLUTIONS. MY

+ PNT WAS THROUGH OUT I SAID ONLY ABOUT SOLUTIONS.

NEXT I SAID “A SEVERE PUNISHMENT SHOULD BE GIVEN 2 ALL THE TERRORISTS, SUCH THAT IT WILL SHAKE THEM AND GIVE A WARNING 2 ALL OF THEM”

MY LAST POINT WCH I TOLD BY RISING MY VOICE WITH MUCH DIFFICULTY WAS “THERE SHOULD BE A PROPER ORGANISATION DEVELOPED WHOSE GOAL WOULD BE 2 CHECK ALL THE TERRORIST ACTIVITIES”

3 FRIENDS COULDN't SPEAK OUT, SO SIR GAVE THEM A CHANCE.

FINALLY THE ONE WHO TOOK INITIATIVE HAS CONCLUDED.

ALL WERE GOOD, SO I THOUGHT THAT I COULDN't GIVE MY 100% AND I WAS VERY UPSET WHEN I

CAME OUT. BUT MY LUCK N MY + PNTS SUPPORTED ME.

KEYPOINTS WHICH WERE IN MY FAVOUR

I ALLOWED OTHERS 2 TALK INSTEAD OF INTERUPTG.

I MAINTAINED GOOD EYE CONTACT.

I NODDED MY HEAD BY SUPPORTG EVERYBODY? S PNTS

I TRIED 2 HELP THEM BY SAYING SOM WORDS WCH SUPPORTED AND COMPLTED THEIR VIEWS.

CZ OF MY SUPPORT, THEY AL MAINTAINED GOOD EYE CONTACT VTH ME 4 MORE TIME.

THOUGH, I SAID FEW POINTS THAN ALL OF THEM, MINE WERE RELEVENT TO TOPIC (i.e., ONLY SOLUTIONS).

MY LANGUAGE WS FLUENT, I DNT PAUSE IN BTWEEN ANY SENTENCE VCH I TOLD.

SO PLZ REMEMBER MY KEYPOINTS FOR YOUR SUCCESS.
