Application Process

Applications for the online short term internship were invited by the commission at their official website. i.e. nhrc.nic.in

Number of Interns

They selected 50 interns from all over India. The interns were from various states like Maharashtra, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh etc. The internship offer is not limited only to law students, it is also available to students pursuing Master’s degree in any branch of social sciences.

Duration

This time, the internship programme was during the period of 1st July, 2021 to 15 July, 2021. Two interesting facts deserve mention here. First, the number of female interns was more than the male interns. Second, the number of law students was less than the other field of students. There were 20 law students and 30 non-law students. Out of the non-law students, there was diversity. There were students pursuing Sociology, Political Science, Economics, International Relations, Social Work, Anthropology, Criminology etc.

First Day, First Impression

The day began with the inaugural ceremony playing the Anthem of National Human Rights Commission chaired by Justice Arun Mishra, the Chairperson. Mrs Anita Sniha gave us a passing reference what all will be done in the 15 days and the sessions from senior officers began. On the very first day itself we were provided with the link of National Digital Library of India from where we had to choose a book of our interest and prepare a book review. 

Tasks and Overall Work

The next assignment was the ‘Research Project Work’. There were 8 topics on which the 50 interns were divided to work upon. Our group managed to earn the 3rd prize in the group research project. There was a Declamation contest too. In the meantime, we had sessions with the Hon’ble Chairpersons and Members on the topics including Mental health issues especially in time of Covid-19, Child sexual abuse, LGBTI issues to name a few. The most important part of the internship was the ‘Online Field Visits’ i.e. Police Stations and NGOs.

The last day was the ‘Valediction Day’Justice Arun Mishra, Hon’ble Chairperson of NHRC, gave the valedictory speech. Many senior staff of the NHRC attended the programme. Some of the interns including me summed up and gave feedback on the whole 15 DAY internship programme. After it was over, the results of the various competitions held were declared and the internship was called off with the online group photo click.

Good Things

The experience has been so memorable. The staff and members were co-operative and made the internship a live experience. I had not thought of an online internship being so fruitful and enriching.

Bad Things

As such there were no bad things but we had no breaks in between the sessions just 20 minutes lunch break from the whole 10 am to 5.30 pm sessions which sometimes would make us lethargic.

Stipend

Rs. 2000/- plus the cash prizes won from various activities conducted.

Overall this has been the best ever internship of my college days.
