I have donated whenever possible, especially during the pandemic. However, my recent donation was more from a sense of remorse.
It so happened that I was participating in an online pre-placement interview. One round had a question that we were to solve. We were to be interviewed individually about the method we used to solve the problem.
After the first part, I discussed the answers with my friend, who also was a candidate. His interview was two hours before mine, so I called after his round got over. After our chat, I changed one step in my solution, which was difficult to spot for any candidate. During my interview round, the interviewer did ask if I had changed this step after speaking with a friend. I answered with an emphatic no. The interviewer didn’t press too hard and moved on.
After the interview, though, I was filled with remorse. To (kind of) compensate, I donated whatever I could to a COVID 19 charity via Paytm.
PS: Two days later, I moved on to next round
