Work environment at the National Commission for Women is very friendly your immediate bosses will be cool with you and explain you every work and you can easily ask them your queries.
The best things AND the bad things
Best Thing: All were friendly.
You get exposure to the core problems women facing in India and you get to know how everything works. You meet a lot of students from different law schools and colleges. And you can even visit near by places as Connaught place, Bengali Market even Chandni Chowk is just 10 minutes far.
Bad Thing: Nothing was bad except a few arrogant interns.
Accommodation etc. What did you to do chill in and around the office and the place of stay?
I am a Delhite so I don’t have to search for accommodation, metro is nearby so you can easily fetch metro and come and go to work. I used to go to Bengali market for fun with friends.
