Then they called me rattu at that time. They asked me some questions about MS excel I said I know pivot macros vlookup hlookup they said we don't know that much how can you know. Then they start searching for my experience in my cv. I said u heard about google studied and learnt from there. Then again he called me rattu..after that he asked if I going to teach you something how many times I have to teach you ...I said 1 to 2 times depends upon the nature of the work. I am also a human. then he asked in how many days you will forget that concept? I said if I stopped working on that segment then may be in 2 or 3 month I may lost the fluency.
