Nerves of Steel

This true story may sound like one we keep hearing in forwarded mails, but don't have any way to verify whether it actually happened.

Last year, during the Training and Placement season of IIT Kharagpur, one of my wingmates appeared for the interview of a major steel company. The interviewer asked the candidates to tell the factors influencing establishment of an iron and steel plant at a location.

This guy thought for a while and told "लोहा बनाने के लिए लोहे का कलेजा होना चाहिए ।"
("To make iron/steel, one should have nerves of steel.")

Needless to say, the interviewer was impressed and he was selected.
