Ramesh's grammar is a bit stilted, but nothing grisly.

If they already have his samples, they already have the basis to
decide whether his technical writing is clear and complete. Clean-up
could be done by a copy-editor without a technical degree.

Ramesh's larger problem may be that he is so worried in the first
place. "Facing" is a charged word -- look at "facing charges" or
"facing a firing squad."

If I were an interviewer, and I detected a high level of anxiety, one
question I'd ask the applicant is "can you work independently or do
you need regular guidance from a supervisor?"

Ramesh, my advice to you is relax. They want to hire somebody, and if
it's you they'd be happy that their search was over. You've had
interviews for positions you didn't get, they've had interviews with
applicants they decided not to hire; being a professional means not
only being able to handle disappointment but also being courteous to
the other party, who are probably diappointed themselves.

Reviewing grammar rules doesn't hurt, of course, and it's something
even we native speakers have to do; I'm still doubling back to check
the rules on using "that" and "which."

Good luck on the interview.
