The Panel that selected the girl
One thing that the girl always cherishes is the SAE auditions. A year has rolled by since the day she gave her auditions where Shubham asked her whether she wanted to get into SAE because she wanted to learn how to ride a bike, Niran crossed off HTML from her form because she couldn’t say the code to make a link open in a new tab, VG made her promise that no matter what happens, even if her work is not acknowledged, she will never leave the creative team for the technical.
The girl now is a member of the panel
Today, a year later the girl is on the other side. She has a totally different experience. A year ago, her hands were cold while she was sitting before a panel of 7-8 interviewers shooting different questions to judge her, now is one amongst the panel – playing different roles of a interviewer, critic and consoler as and when time demands. Situations have changed. Shubham has become more serious, Niran seems calmer, VG hasn’t changed, she did hear him give the same speech to another student, the one which she got to hear a year back herself. And there are many more people who have come into the scene- Madhyama, Rintu, Subhankar, Tejaswi, Saurav, Apoorva, Indra, Shouvik, Nimit, Manali, Daksh, Partha, Abhishek, Rahul, chandap, Samarth, Ashish, Satish, Sohini, Neeru, Garima and obviously the girl herself.
Testing the candidates
Questions asked varied in context and difficulty level to test the interviewee in every field, to extract the best in them. Each candidate was tested for administration, technical and creative stuff. Even situations were presented to review the candidate’s reaction in such situations. The girl even wondered that how simple topics like value of root 2 or c.c or making a six out of IX can become important criteria for selections.

There were a lot of enjoyable moments. Topics like PMC, MUKTI ka MZ4, convincing the dean’s daughter, taking girls in boy’s hostels for orientation, keeping boys and girls separate during DJ night, selling pens and key rings to committee members sent everyone rolling on the floor with laughter. In the third round, the candidates were checked for their capabilities of working in a team, multitasking and completing a set of tasks in a given time under the supervision of second years. Needless to say, everyone did a wonderful job.
The girl was amazed to see the dedication, passion and enthusiasm of the candidates and the team. She saw it all, she lived it all. She had the fun and experience of a lifetime.
As the wheels of life moves on, as the entropy of the universe changes, as days pass by, life moves towards an unknown destination. One batch leaves, the other comes, but the engine will never stop roaring.
