[OFF] How I screwed up my Microsoft Interview

It's almost a month since my interview call at Microsoft India Development Centre @Bangalore. The fateful day was 30th March, 2011 and I got an E-Mail from a recruiter around a week before that day. My friends, Ishan and Sudipto also received the interview call offer. It was a stunning moment for me, after which there was fall from grace.

It all started with a phone call from Ishan, my programming friend at IEM. He wanted me to be a part of their team for Overnite, the ACM-ICPC Programming Contest at IIT, Kharagpur this year. I agreed. We participated for the qualification rounds and qualified as toppers. Sudipto and me solving a problem each. To be frank, this qualifiers was among the worst I have ever seen from this institution.
