sTuPid...wHo?

Final year placement in college is always an important phase of every one's life and as always there used to be 3 standard rounds 1. Written test, 2. Group Discussion and 3. Interview.

It was just another Off campus Placement for the company Polaris and I somehow after mugging up all the question paper Dumps, dumped them and cleared the first round. The second being the Group Discussion which I fancied I was very good at, bcos of my usual blah blah blah stuff .There were 7 of them around and each one looked to pounce on the topic, as we were given the impression that whoever initiates the discussion,are bound to get credit points .



Then came the moderator and announced the topic . The topic was - "Stupid" , I like all around me got totally bewildered...and none started the discussion. When one guy who looked more relevant with the topic (he was the only one clad in t shirt and jean with a half beard) after a big Phew he started -


" Well, it just another day when Sachin was totally useful with his forehand and Bill gates roared with laughter at Steve Jobs Monopoly,down came the chicken which crossed the road getting hit by an unarmed terrorist, Rajnikant and his bus conductor attitude giving Spielberg a run for his money. Also not to forget the ever homely acting of Paris Hilton in our Bollywood movies, Karunanidhi and Jayalalitha's new Party takes India by storm and...blah blah blah he went for more than 2 full minutes" finally he stopped to all our gaping mouth astonishment.


I was thinking, what the hell? has he gone mad???. Then he said " Well, now that's what I call it as stupidity and guess i make one of them! " Holy Cow!! he made us sit like morons in the end! Obviously he was selected for the next round, that's Presence of Mind for yu.

But P.S : I came to know that he was put up in the bench for last one year :) ..that's one a different note!!

Archana said...

Lol, that's some spot on creativity. I had a very different college experience, so can't relate necessarily (no final year placement, standard rounds, etc). Though, a person with a presence of mind will stand out in any crowd, and in any situation. Good for him. :)
