Once two friends Rahul and Sushil appeared for an interview for a multinational IT company. After clearing the technical interview they were called for an HR interview the next day.
Raghav and Sushil reached early the next morning and thus started the interview.
‘Good morning sir’ said Rahul and Sushil collectively.
‘Good Morning. Please have your seat and then we shall start with the interview process,’ said the interviewer.
Both of them sat down on their respective chairs and waited for their first question patiently.
‘What is the fastest thing in the world,’ asked the interviewer to Rahul.
‘According to me a supercomputer is the fastest thing in the world because it can do trillions of calculations in a second,’ said Rahul.
Then the same question was posed to Sushil to which he replied ‘According to me it is intellect because it is capable of building the fastest computer.’
The interviewer noted both the answers and posed the next question. ‘What is the heaviest thing in the world?’
‘The heaviest thing in my opinion is an elephant,’ replied Rahul.
The interviewer asked the same question to Sushil to which he replied ‘According to me the heaviest thing is intellect because by using it we can build cranes which can even lift the heaviest of elephants.’
The interview asked the third and the final question ‘What is the most important thing in life?’
Rahul thought a lot to ensure that he comes up with a brilliant answer. ‘According to me its money because it can let a person lead a life on his own terms.’ said Rahul after brainstorming for about a minute.
Sushil maintained his calm and replied ‘According to me its intellect because if used wisely, it can transform a man into a billionaire.’
The interviewer noted down all the answers and found Sushil to be a perfect match for the company.
