My turn came at 11:30am and I started deep breathing to relax myself. I turned on stopwatch in my mobile and entered into the room along with attender. (No chance to knock the door)
There were 5M and 1F in the panel and interview went for 30 minutes

F1: Suppose a drunken man came to bank and creating nuisance ,how will u respond?
Me: Drunken men/women are to be dealt softly and if we show anger on them, it will be unbearable to handle their retaliation. We have to show some concern towards them and ask them what their problem really is. We should have some empathy.
EVERYONE STARTED DISCUSSING AMONG THEMSELVES FOR 1 MINUTE. I WIDENED MY EARS BUT COULDN’T HEAR ANYTHING.
M3: So far your interview is good and how many marks plus cutoff you are expecting to get?

F1: Your age is 21 and you got some baldness. What is the reason?
Me: I am not bald ma’am. I have more head to show. Its simple.
Again everyone laughed and asked me to take a chocolate and leave. I finally thanked them and left.
