HAPPY NEW YEAR!
As I mentioned before, I wasn't so much passionate about Android app development.
Unfortunately jobs related to my passions or interests don't account for a permanent income. One of my interests and passion is to review new gadgets & write or share reviews like digit. Unfortunately in my locality no opportunities for such kind of jobs.
Btw, I would like to know if digit has any plans to open office in Trivandrum (which is the most feasible city I prefer for job) so that I may hope to get an opportunity for the job I like.

You can start blog writing on these products as a side work, and if you get succesful in that, it means that you have the required skills. After that, you can use that as reference while applying job at any place like digit. That way you will earn the required experience to apply for such job.

Edit:- Happy New Year everyone.

The above 2 answers (& many) from Quora points the negative aspects of IT companies in India.
So before joining a company is there any way to know the company that I am going to work have taken any steps to solve the negatives (especially the deadline, long working hours, expecting the employees to be available 24x7) in a way without having a negative impression on me?

For that you should try to ask employees who have actually worked there. Reviews on Glassdoor are not really reliable since employers these days ask employees to put favourable reviews.

One company is hosting an open house event (this time it is virtual Google meet) for participants who want to know more about the company, it's work environment, employees etc. Is it the right place to ask these? Can you please share tips to avoid having negative impression on me?

I am facing another trouble. In my team one member who has some experience often have to take leave as she is pregnant and have to go for checkups & is not able to work due to physical discomforts related to it. Unexpected frequent leaves can affect work schedule & the company has become stricter in deadlines.

Lol. This happens occasionally. But it is to be expected.

I'd suggest you do some soul-searching and see how much effort are you putting into this company. If you think that the pressure is not justified for the amount of effort you are putting, then I think it's best if you start looking for another job.

Edit: What I meant is, switch companies. Remember that management won't know about your problems unless you speak to someone in management about it.

it's the way of life. Nothing for the lady to be put on stress about. Neither you or her are at fault. Take it to management and see if they say. And as @Desmond David says, don't let it drain you completely.

Currently projects are at peak in my present company. If I apply for a job in a company & they call for an interview I have to take leave or permission to attend the interviews. If I am selected it is ok, but else I have to face the present company again & might have more pressure. How to deal this situation?

Just set it as a personal leave, dude... no company can make you stay like a slave. Taking personal leaves is your right.
if that doesnt work out, set it to medical leave.

In my present company, only 1 eligible leave per month & I have already taken 1 this month.

I think this is no place to discuss on this.
We can't have any solution for this, you too have to work with her.

Just plan workload, don't assign her critical modules and that way.

You have to plan a leave when you are called for an interview. Weekends prepare your skills..
