    Then the other male person started asking Questions on testing:

    Sir: (I read from his face that he is impressed) Okay tell me what are the various fields in Bugzilla???..
    Me : Told (Guys u need not prepare this because I have written it in my resume so don?t worry?)

    Sir: Suppose u opened the yahoo page?.nd the name of yahoo written on it is wrong?..Is this the bug of high severity or high priority
    Me: High priority nd expain why 

    Now the other person who is continuously monitoring me jumped into action?.. 

    Sir: Okay Write a query for this scenario?????..
    Me: (Take my time nd got the soln??I started writing it with inner join?..).. 

    he interrupted in between??.Are you writing this query in Sequel?.

    Sir: Shows that he is very angry??nd asked me to leave????? 

    Me: (Guys??.this is very important???I kept my mind cool at that time??Bec I know what he is trying to do???.He is trying to frustrate me and then see what will be my reaction??) I just give a little smile, greeted all of them again??nd say that it was nice interviewing with u with a smile?..nd come back???. 

    The questions asked from other people were on MAJOR and MINOR projects, OOPS fundamentals, Database, C, C++?????.But just overview of them?And then come the good news??I cleared the tech interview?.

    HR and MR

    Again a mam(HR) nd a sir(manager) over there
