First impression. First day, formalities etc.
The first day of the work was pretty interesting. I got to meet various other interns from other colleges across the country, which is always an eye opening and enriching experience.
The PUCL Jaipur Internship program is mainly a research based which involves a lot of field work. My team and I were asked to research on NREGA, shelter homes etc.

The work environment was very nice and enriching. Having a large number of co-interns was a lot of fun and all the tasks however back breaking were always fun to do. One can never get bored.
