Accommodation: how, where, how was it?
I live in my home and went to office which was one an hour far from my home. I used to take a bus and go down to my office daily.
First impression. First day, formalities etc.
1st day, they register our names and told about work and office. I got to know about the basic concepts of human rights , was introduced to the members of the commission.
The only formality which I did was to submit the original copy of the recommendation letter and to write an application saying I am interested in interning at CGHRC.
We learnt about what work they does in offices, what type of cases come in office, procedure of office.
An application is registered and then classified as to which department this application belongs to and how the investigation of a matter takes place.
Work environment, people
People where cooperative and work environment is good, the law officer and research officer used to keep a check on every intern by just sitting in their cabins and watching us from their respective window glasses which makes a person work more efficiently.
Co-interns made the workplace more happening as everybody was involved in reading and discussing each application which they get.
The work condition, you were supposed to work on different reports one by one, it was full settled, first the police reports are to be given to the interns to go through followed by the jail reports and then the hospital ones at the last.
This managed the whole work very properly and helped us a lot in writing our last day report easily.
Travelling for one hour up and one hour down is not everybody’s cup of tea. It makes you tired and also the day timings of the internship were bad enough to regret us our travelling in hot sunny day.
What did you do to chill? Co-interns, colleagues
We used to go to cafe for coffee. There are nearby many street shopping places where we shopped sometimes, also we would go to the nearby mazaar we had and look at people of different religions worship.
Anything else you’d like to tell; Biggest lessons
Yes, I learn lots of thing there and rights of human and moral values are the most important things which any person of prudent mind should know.
Awareness created by these autonomous bodies are helping a lot to make it grow more stronger.
