2nd January, 2015 –  27th January, 2015

First Day

I expected OHRC to be working like some government department with unsystematic carrying out of the procedure. But my first day entry into the office proved my expectations to be wrong. It was a very well structured systematized office.

There is no such professional formalities but after the first meet with the chairperson of the commission ,he would just simply ask you for a introduction that’s it. Further you will be shown the attendance register which will be kept in a particular place where you need to put your signature everyday.

Main tasks

Mostly we were given to read the cases and prepare a summary or a note on that. The best thing was to watch the court proceedings which gave us a real and practical knowledge in the field of Human Rights.

Work environment

A systematic working environment with every employee working with all his/her sincerity to help out the victims.

Best things

Interns are well treated with lot of care and affection. An amazing internship for the first years.Moreover it is located in one of the best areas of the city so you will find good places to hangout with your co-interns 😛

Bad things

Nothing as such



Biggest Lessons

The country requires an urgent attention towards the human rights violations taking place.

Anything else?

Best place to create up contacts with the lawyer and the activist working against the Human Rights violation.
