RBD: Ok MR. Waseem why you want to join civil service? why police group?

RBD: We are impressed that you started at such an early age and you have passed the exam in your first attempt. Tell me how you prepared for CSS. You made notes, or you went for cramming the books. (With laughter)
ME: I explained how I prepared CSS. (Though he never let me complete my answer)
RBD: You have written that URDU should be compulsory in CSS; will it not create problems for Sindhis, blouchis and pakhtoons?
ME: No Sir. And explain how the standard of Urdu is deteriorating. And how it has become difficult for us to speak proper Urdu, without using English words. I also explained that as civil servants we will have to deal with people and for that matter we must have grip over Urdu. RBD seemed unimpressed.
RBD: There is a body in Pakistan to stop cartelization?
Me: Yes sire. It’s CCP
RBD: Whats its status now a day? Is it functional now a day?
Me: No sir, I explained in context of 18th amendment that president can’t repromulgate the ordinance. That’s why it’s non-functional. And senate is still scrutinizing it.

AS (Asif shah): Finance adviser said yesterday that next budget will not be pro-poor. What does it mean??

Me: No sir (this question was quite different, I never expected it)
AS: O ya, no one knows the marks. Even we don’t know the marks.

AS: What is issue of Hunza Lake?

AS: Thank you

Saud Gauhar(SG): What is Obama health care reform bill?
Me: Sir This bill turns the multi-player system to a single player health care system. In Canada there is single player system and the administrative cost is 17% while in US it is 30% because there are approx. 1300 insurance companies. So to save the administrative cost and to cover the 45million uninsured Americans among which 32 million are first generation migrants, this bill had been introduced.

SG: Why republicans are opposing it?
Me: mainly because of its cost. Initially it will cost 970 billion dollars but will save 200 billion dollars annually.
And moreover some republicans also have there own interests in health insurance companies.

SG: What are the challenges to police?
Me: it can’t deal with terrorism, lesser police to population ratio, no proper paraphernalia, and political manipulation etc
SG: How to modify police so that it deals with terrorism?
Me: explained fully.
SG: What is ethnocentrism?
Me: The belief that one’s own group, society or family is good, greater, superior and strong while those of the others’ are bad and inferior.
SG: What is Cultural lag?
Me: Cultural lag is the phenomenon where culture doesn’t readily accept the changes. It resists the social change. If you introduce some innovations in culture and it doesn’t adjust itself to the innovations, it means cultural lag is there.

SG: thank you.

I don’t know the duration of my interview. But the attitude of the panel was very co-operative.
