Qn: Is it your first time in Hyderabad? You seem to have an interest in photography. While walking in for the interview, did you find any spots here? Isn’t this campus very photogenic?
A: First time here, yes. The campus is indeed beautiful but while walking in my shoe broke, and that kept my mind occupied.
Followup Qn: What kinds of photography do you like the most? If you were given a grant to make a photo journal, what would you do about it and how will you spend money?
