My Interview : Jyoti

My Interview : Jyoti

oI had my interview on 13th of april.I got up early in the morning at
5 o clock.My god i was feeling sick.I had a bad stomach and i thought
that number 13 is working at full throttle.Anyhow i gulped down few
pills and everthing got fine.I wore a white shirt,blue trouser and a
matching tie.I reached at upsc 15 mins before 9.As i entered the
waiting room,candidates already sitting there gave me a gud news that
i will be the first one to be interviewed.My heart was racing faster
than F1 cars.However i started interacting with the candidates and and
became normal.Soon i was told that i will be interviewed by Mrs
Chokila iyer.Few minutes later call of destiny came and i followed the
peon.He aked me to wait outside the room.While i was waiting outside i
was trying to get familiar with the surroundings.Then the bell rang
and i went inside.The lady sitting as the chairman gave a benign look
and smiled a bit. I greeted her first and then the other members.I sat
on the chair when asked by madam.

country only 1.3% of total produce is getting processed whereas in
developed countries it is around 80%

can help in reducing the wastage and it will also enhance the
nutritional aspects of food.

c-can u tell me something about wheat procurement by private players

j-mam,in states like punjab and rajasthan APMC act has been modified
which allows the private players to procure directly from the
farmers.Many companies like itc,cargill,glencore are already procuring
wheat from farmers.Farmers are getting better prices.

subsidise our agri upto 10% of total agri production while for US it
