Day 2: Visit to Cognizant and shopping at Commercial street

The day started with a visit to Cognizant. Everyone gathered in the hotel lobby at 8.30 in the morning and then we headed to Cognizant. The building was near to other IT companies like Yahoo, Juniper and Oracle. There were two speakers from Cognizant who told us about the company itself and the recruitment process in India, which was very interesting. After the presentations we got invited for lunch in their canteen and our meal was provided from the catering service of our hotel. After lunch we went back to the hotel and took a break for one hour before leaving to the commercial street of the local market. At the commercial street we spent more than two hours shopping and experiencing the Indian way of negotiating.

Afterwards we went to eat dinner in a vegetarian local restaurant called „Ullas refreshment“ where we tried a lot of spicy Indian food. Later our guide showed us a club in Brigade road where some of us danced to Indian club music and others just sat back and enjoyed a cold beer. Unfortunately the club closed at 11.30pm and so we went back to the hotel. After arriving there some people went to sleep and others played funny card games with our tour guide.
