The first day of the internship was quite exciting.
I was briefed about the task that is to be undertaken during the internship period and was also introduced to all the other Employees under whom I would work.
There were no formalities to be fulfilled as such.
The Office was quite impressive and had enough space for interns to work.
It is situated at 19 & 21, Bhagwan Mahaveer Road, (Infantry Road) Bangalore.
Generally you are asked about your interest and based on that you are allotted work.
Initially they had given me field work where I had to cover daily news by going to various places in the city but gradually when I told them that I was interested in covering more sport events they shifted me to the sports section and was asked to cover the Football League which was ongoing then.
