Woman and the mid aged man gave a look to each other and both of the old men joined them and with a smile the most aged person told me
"ab aap ja sakte hain diwakar ji"
Me: "Thank you very much sir and ma'm. It's been really nice talking to you"

My Suggestions : So I used only those terms in the interview which I already knew. Never use any word whose meaning you can't clarify in front of them. Never shoot guess answers at them. Smile, even if you don't know the answer. Just simply say " I don't know " rather than confusing with wrong answer to show them your false confidence. Be confident about your rights and honest about what you don't know.
And all the best to all of you.
