my interview was so simple
they asked nothing about my favorite personalities and books...
chairman asked why didn't u do any jon after your masters

i couldn't comprehend question...he was speaking so slow..
then he made question easy for me
but i think i didn't answe well
then role of media in our society
what is the negative role of media in society
i said media is creating sensationalism in society
a discussion on this topic
about mukhataran mai....did mukhtaran mai incident and role of media in that earned a bad name
then mam batool asked about nuclear programme of iran
what do you think iran is making nuclear bomb?.....my answer was its quite natural every country want power an deterrance...it is quite possible iran is making a nuclear bomb
then she asked why america is opposing iran's nuclear programme...why doesn't us want iran to make a nuclear bomb...i answered because a nuclear iran could pose a threat to the very survival of israel..it could destabilise the middle east region...
then she asked is there any progress in recent almaty talks...i said us has soften some sanctions....she said no..i said us has allowd iran to do trade in sector of precious metals...
then she asked if ahmadinejad goes and some other iranian leader comes then how do u see iranian nuclear programme...my answer was national interests of the countries are irrespective of this change....it doesn't matter who comes and who goes iranian nuclear programme will continue...

Default My Interview

My interview was somewhat in reverse order they started from opinion and ended at my personal areas, and chairman was the last one to ask questions.
They asked questions from my personal performa, optional, masters degree, profession and favourite personality. No question was there from current affairs.

Mr. Naguib Ullah:
Why do you want to join civil services?
Do you think you have the skills which are needed for civil service?
DMG is your first preference? Why DMG?
What kind of reforms will you suggest for bureaucracy?

Mr. Mansoor Sohail:
Being a student of literature I expect from you analysis?What are your views about Usama Bin Laden?
I said there are two aspects if we come to analyze it. If we look upon 90s he was the same person who was being idealized and projected as being a hero waging Jehaad then came 9/11 and whole scenario got changed and he was termed to be a terrorist.
How it all got changed?
I said it was mainly by propaganda propagated by West because most of the information we got about him was via Western media sources.
You mean to say he was a good person but misunderstood and misrepresented?
I said No, I do not idealize him. Further discussion on it, he asked time and again whats bottom line and whats my personal assessment of him and avoided giving him a label, I tried to be in mid between, he said all the world is unanimous, its proven that he was a terrorist.Is he right? Are the people who are following him justified and right?
I said in my opinion if a person either he is Bin Laden or anyone else has an objective to serve Islam and his ways and ends are as per Islamic teachings he is right, but terrorizing and attacking people and civilians on the name of Islam, is certainly not a service to Islam.( again I didn’t ended up giving him a certain label of being a terrorist or hero. I don’t know this approach was right or wrong)
Phir unho nay thak haar k topic e change ker dia

Ok.You have done masters in English Literature?
Among Shakespeare’s tragedy which one you like the most?
What is the theme of Hamlet?
What was the tragic flaw of hero?
Which thing inspired you most in Hamlet?

Ma’am Batool Qureshi:
Naila if you are to write research papers or nay analytical work what type of measures will you suggest to improve education system?
I mentioned more budgetary allocation, better infrastructure, assessment, curriculum, and most of all I asserted that procedure of teacher’s recruitment should be changed, instead of hiring teachers only on basis of academic record, assessment of their aptitude and teaching abilities should be made so that they could deliver better.
Do we need to spend more on primary education? Secondary? or higher?
Where do you live? its a village, town or city?
What flaws you observed in educational institutes? ( she asked this probably looking at my autobiography)
Can students influence the teachers?

What was “Jasmine Revolution”? (she asked this question from my personality traits Performa where I had mentioned Tawakul Karman as my favourite personality who led the Jasmine Revolution)
Will you lead a revolution?
I was thinking what should I answer then with a smile she said:
You can bring a revolution in education?

Chairman:
Novel writing is you hobby?
When did you write? Was it published?
How was the response of the audience?
Then why did not you write further?
You should have written. You should carry on it further.

British History was your optional?
What is Magna Carta? What was its effect? Does it ended monarchy? How did people’s will become supreme?

I said Magna Carta brought slight change but it was a harbinger which asserted human rights against Monarchs discretionary powers, parliament’s will was asserted through glorious revolution. He then asked about time span between the both and said why it took centuries for change to come. I said British democratic progress was evolutionary in essence, institutions progressed slowly, covering flaws that was indigenous that’s why they got strengthened.

He then thanked me, greeted a good day and said it was nice, good luck

Hmm This interview is quite mixture of all things, and your performance seems to be comendable. The Panel might wanted a change in interview pattern in your turn because they may have becomed bored by following similar inteview lines. Wish you all the best for your allocation in higher groups.

I button off my coat n sat in the chair comfortably.

Chairman asked me general Qs related to my field (textiles).

Then, Chairman asked me about Durand line, ceasefire line n LoC.
I answered correctly with figures like dates n lengths.

He then enquired me about origin of names of these lines.
I again answered him with accurate figures.
(Chairman seemed satisfied).

Then, Nagib Ullah sb asked me why I wanted to join PSP.
I delivered 5 pertinent reasons.

He enquired me about various things regarding Police n I gave my answers with comfort.

He then asked me why I opted Philosophy.
I gave very strong reasons.

He smiled n asked me the philosophy of my life.
I satisfied him on this point.

Then, Mansoor Suhail sb further asked me abt Philosophy n Pak-US Relations.
I answered with facts n added new nominations of Obama in my answer.

Then, Ghalib-ud-Din sb again asked me about Philosophy n US-Hist.
I again played in my strong area.

In the last, Mam Batool asked me about Dr. A Q Khan n Indo-US Nuclear deal.
I answered her to the point n explained to her our national interests in this case.

She asked me a technical point n I answered it pertinently.
(She seemed satisfied too).

Finally, Chairman smiled to me n said "Best of Luck, Have a nice day!"

I reciprocated by saying "Sir, Have a good day too "

He passed smile. I got off my seat, button up my coat n turned to the door.



Overall, I enjoyed the whole activity. Panel was soft-spoken. I listened to them carefully n they, to me . Most of the times, members seemed satisfied with my answers n their body-language n gestures were very positive .

This time...duration will not matter..they want to start a debate with you..and if you are playing at lower end..they ll take more time to prove that you know nothing...secondly duration matters..but it doesnt prove that they are considering you.
Thirdly, in 2011 there were many friends of mine who were told that they were being awarded police,FSP or any other..but most of them failed to secure any post.
So both thing can never be a yardstick for success.
My observation is that...present panel will rely more on written part and psychological assessment...!!
