Accommodation: how, where, how was it?
I have a home in Delhi, but lot of accommodation facilities are available in Delhi, and with metro, the commute is very easy.
PGs are easily available.
First impression. First day, formalities etc.
On the very first day at the office, we had an orientation, which proved very useful after.
First impression indicated that the NHRC was competently fulfilling its duties.
I was entrusted with the task of preparing Comparative analysis of Mental Health bill 2013 and Mental Health Act, 1987. The work was interesting.
I had to do a fair amount of research which will probably help me in law school life.
Work environment, people
The place had a good work environment. NHRC employees were generally helpful. They were professional but approachable. Any doubts I had were cleared by them.
It was a good work experience. I learnt a lot and met new people.
There was lack of communication between various cells of NHRC, which often posed difficulties in getting work done.
What did you do to chill? Co-interns, colleagues
Usually went the NHRC mess to rest and eat after end of work. Also, Delhi has a lot of places one can go to hang out.
It was an unpaid internship
Anything else you’d like to tell; Biggest lessons
Internship as a whole was a very good experience, working in the NHRC gave valuable insights into the nature and scope of human rights and their defence.
