Default CSS Interviews 2005

Faisal Abro is a good friend of mine. He appeared thrice in Competitive Exams and got 630, 661 and 726 in written examination. In his second attempt (2002) he was allocated to Income Tax but his aim was to join Foreign Services so he gave his third attempt and in 2004ís attempt he got first position in Sindh. Due to his commitment and determination he achieved his goal and nowadays he is doing his Specialized Training in Foreign Services Academy Islamabad. People like Faisal are a source of inspiration for all those who are thinking to be CSPs in coming years. After qualifying his second attempt he was interviewed in 2003 and panel asked him following questions:

One thing I must appreciate about Mr. Faisal is his memory. I donít think it is possible for everyone to remember each and every question asked in interview but he remembered even the exact sequence as well.
I would like to request that you people should pray for my success in the attempt I have just given. Result of written exam is expected to be announced on 20th November 2005. Although my target is Foreign Services but I will be happy to get any ministry this time and I will surely avail my third attempt to join Foreign Services and be a Diplomat.
For the benefit for all aspirants if any one is interested to answer the above written questions related to GK, it will so nice of him/her.
