Duration of internship and timings
June – July, 2016
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
The first day. The memory of the first day is crystal clear. I was waiting outside at 9:30 am.
They opened up the office a little later. I was asked to wait at the interns table.
I remember this day because of the kind of people I met while waiting for my supervisor to show up.
There were people constantly offering me food or water, making conversation.
Basically trying to make me feel as welcomed as possible.
My main task was as a research assistant.
Work environment and people
The people at CCL are the best.
If you show the slightest interest in whatever task you’ve been assigned they will make sure you are appreciated for it.
The more excited you are the more excited they get.
Honestly, I learnt a little bit from single person at CCL.
Honestly, the best thing about the internship is access to NLSIU’ library and just NLSIU in general.
For anyone looking for a chilled out internship, CCL is probably the thing for you.
The bad things. If you’re not into research, you’re probably going to have a horrible experience.
The basic work deals with researching, writing reports and summaries etc.
If you don’t enjoy those things, and do not have interest in it, it’ll take you less than four days to get bored.
The biggest lesson I learnt mostly dealt with loving alone in a big city. But I’m not going to go into those details. My biggest lesson from the internship was how the ground reality is different from what we expect.
I had to go through case after case of abuse, harassment and cruelty.
The reality of the world kind of slaps you in the face when you’re interning in such an organisation.
Any Other Thing
For the couple of days I stayed in the girl’s hostel. And then I had to move into a PG nearby.
9:30 am to 4:30 pm
