Now the chairman told the lady to ask
L : you have written searching new words of English as ur hobby. Where do u search these new words from?
Me : Earlier I used to search it from a Vocabulary book, then from dictionary also. Now I search it mostly from the online sources.
Then the lady told me to write three new words on a paper kept in front of me.
I wrote three words and explained properly
Three words :
Defenestrate – To throw somebody out of a window.
Alpenglow – The redness of sunlight during Sunrise and Sunset.
Schadenfreude – I told its a German word and it means the malicious happiness which one gets by hurting others.
Lady : How is Twilight different from Alpenglow?
Me : Mam, Twilight basically means the period between evening and dusk, i. e. for evening only whereas Alpenglow is applicable for both morning and evening.
L : You are from Ballia… What is the contribution of Ballia in the revolt of 1857.
Me : Ballia has great contribution in the revolt of 1857. Mangal Pandey of Nagwa district of Ballia, sorry, Nagwa village of Ballia district (yahan thoda gadbad ho gaya tha) was the first one to revolt against the Britishers. Unhone janwar k maans se bane kartoos istemal karne se mana kar diya tha… Aur yehin se revolt shuru hua tha.
Now comes the turn of other 2 males.
M1 : Toh aap Ballia se hain, Ballia ko Bagi Ballia kyun kaha jata hai?
Me : Wahan Chittu Pandey ne 1942 me parallel govt chalaya tha, jisme pehli baar kisi ne British govt ko completely overthrow kar diya tha. Ye parallel govt 7 mahine tak chala tha… Aur isi Ballia k Mangal Pandey revolt of 1857 me the… Isi liye ballia ko bagi ballia bhi kaha jata hai.
M1 : Toh kya aise hi hote hain Ballia wale… Bagi types, jahan jaate hain wahin revolt kar dete hain?
(Mai samajh gaya ye uksane ki koshish kar rahe hain, but I was completely cool and calm).
Me(smiling) : Sir dekhiye na inke isi baagi hone se aur revolt karne se aaj ham azad hain. In logon ka Bharat ki azadi me bahut mahatvapurna yogdaan hai…
C : Haan Jihadi bhi aise hi hain baagi types.
Me : Sir Jihadi k intention aur kaam karne k tarike inse bilkul alag hain. Inko compare karna thik nahi hoga.
M1 : Acha toh aap bhi baagi Ballia se hain, aur Metro me kaam bhi karte hain, wahan bhi baagi ho jaenge.
Me : Nahi sir, baagi kyun ho jaenge.
M1 : Acha aapke saamne agar metro mein kuch corruption activity chal raha hai, toh aap kya karenge?
Me : Awaz uthayenge uske khilaf
M1 : Awaz Uthayenge?
Me : Haan bilkul, ab maan lijiye, mere saamne kisi passenger ke saath kuch galat hua ya galat kiraya kata, toh bilkul uska solution nikalna ka koshish karenge.
M1 : aapko nahi lagta Gandhiji ka ye jo ‘do aur die’ ka nara hai, karo ya maro ka… gandhiji last tak aate aate hinsak ho gaye the, marne-maarne ki baat karne lage the
Me : Nahi Sir, Gandhiji ka ye matlab tha ki Bharat ki azadi k liye ab kuch bhi karna itna jaruri ho gaya hai ki ek baar marna bhi pad jae toh chalega. Ise hinsa se jodna galat hoga.
M1 : Ye jo Gandhiji k teen bandar hain. Aapko nahi lagta ye sab faltu ki baatein hain, kaun maanta hai aajkal ye sab… Bura mat suno hai usme aur logon ko burai karne me hi maja aata hai?
Me: Sir mujhe lagta hai Gandhiji k ye principles bahut important hain aur iska matlab kaafi kuch hai.
Agar koi apne jivan me iska 20% bhi dhaal le to uske aur pure society k liye bahut hi acha hoga…
Now the Last male
M2 : Mangal Pandey ka aakhir hasr kya hua tha, goli se uda diya gaya tha ya faansi chadayi gayi thi?
Me : Sorry Sir nahi pata
M2 : Bharat k itehas mein Pehli baar faansi ki saza kisko hui thi.
Me : Sir, Mangal Pandey ji ko hi hui thi shayad.
M2 : Khudi Raam Bose ko hui thi. Ok aapka interview ho gaya hai, aap ja sakte hain…
C : Good!
I thanked everybody and came out 😊😀
