Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Interview Questions

Robotic Process Automation

Robots are here to stay. The faster you harvest their potential, the faster you create a competitive edge for your business. Robotic Process Automation delivers direct profitability while improving accuracy across organizations and industries. Designed to perform on a vast range of repetitive tasks, software robots interpret, trigger responses and communicate with other systems just like humans do. Only substantially better: a robot never sleeps, makes zero mistakes and costs a lot less than an employee.

Delhi Metro: Survival of the fittest!

Disclaimer: If you are not a 300 Movie fan or you have never been in Delhi Metro once, it might be a bit difficult for you to get yourself in those grueling emotions which have been narrated below..

So here is the Plot!

This is a story about king Xerxes (Yellow Line) and King Leonidas (Blue Line)

300 movie
King Xerxes of Yellow line wants to invades Noida with his huge army to extend his vast slave IT empire after successfully concurring Gurgaon, Okhla, Pitampura, Shastri park and some small IT hubs of Delhi.
On the other hand King Leonidas of Blue Line has less support from his neighboring countries except few troops coming from brave scattered colonies of west Delhi and also some fighters from Dwarka-Nazafgarh who are still in dilemma whether they are part of Delhi or not!

Blue line has never been in fight since its inception in 2005 because the yellow line empire was ever increasing since 2004 and had great warriors coming from Rohini, Kashmiri Gate and born fighters of east Delhi’s Seelampur and Shahdra.

They all meet at Rajiv chowk for an ugly Brawl before all of them reach Noida City Center for further mayhem.

Rajiv chowk has witnessed more fights than any other war front in NCR. This is the place where real warriors are born. Xerxes (Yellow line) never misses to show his strength here as warriors who ever wanted to support Leonidas (Blue Line) are never allowed to enter in Yellow line at New Delhi and Old Delhi stations. So, that is why these sad warriors of Noida always have to take long route and travel in Buses and Autos to reach their bunkers. This shady vicious circle has made sure Blue line is never in fight.

rajiv chwok metro stationHere is glimpse of two warriors fighting their heart out for “Glory”. Fist fights make these warriors more hungry for blood! At the end of the day it is a metro token for which they are fighting. How can one not fight for a metro token? If you haven’t you are not a true fighter!

To make things worse, Ephialtes (Violet Line) has started coming into the picture now and started supporting Yellow Line by adding some extra troops at Mandi House station which was never in the picture. These new warriors from Badarpur (read Badlapur) and Nehru Place are very clever. This secret goat passage can indeed turn out to be reason of defeat for Leonidas (Blue Line) as these new warriors always put extra pressure on Blue line warriors.

If news are to be believed this extra pressure from Rajiv Chowk and Mandi House might push these brave men of Blue Line into ladies coach one day which might lead to some extra punishment!

We all pray to god these ever increasing fist fights might one day come to an end for good as these blood bath sessions in Delhi metro are doing nothing but adding more and more frustration in the minds of poor IT slaves. But, this will not be possible without some extra support for blue line at upcoming Mayur Vihar and Botanical Garden stations. Till then this fight for “Honor and Glory” will continue.

May God Bless those brave IT slaves of Noida, Delhi and Gurgaon 😀
