Dear ‘It’s my first time in the industry and I am freaking out’, There’s only so much that I can say or do that will change your perception of the industry as a dark, scary place that will eat you alive and spit you out. The industry, however, is far from it, well mostly. From...
“I want a job which requires everyday travel,” I remember proclaiming before the college break. But two weeks into my internship and I am still not used to the hours of travel on workdays. Between begging dad to drop me off when he has work to funding UAE’s public transportation on a regular basis, calling...
It’s been two weeks since I started my Internship at Helpage India, New Delhi. Interestingly, I still don’t know the names of the four people who sit in the same room as me. But, I do have a good knowledge about their sense of humour. If you’re working in Delhi, expect a sarcastic comment coming...
Act 1, Scene 1: Two young men, just past their teen years, sporting obnoxious jhola bags which were made popular by the Beatles during their stint in Rishikesh. They are walking in a circular path, tracing the concentric streets of Connaught Place in Delhi. One has purpose in his eyes; the other has a LoR in...
The key to an organisation’s success lies in the work culture. A healthy and flourishing work culture truly changes the efficiency with which the employees carry out their functions. The work culture at the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) Mumbai office is quite unique, unlike other NGOs and even corporates. At first glance, it...
Being an ardent admirer of animals and especially dogs, all my preferences for my development sector internship were in animal welfare. Having got into the NGO, ‘The Welfare of Stray Dogs’, my first choice, I was quite thrilled. I had been following their work on Instagram for quite some time and being physically present in...
Oshiwara, Andheri (West) to Lower Parel, Mumbai – a route spanning over 24 kilometres from the North West of Mumbai to South Bombay is a journey that shows you the various colours of this iconic city. My very first internship allowed me to experience what several thousands of Mumbaikars have every single day of their...
Brief background: pertaining to the pointless political exercise Jammu is often caught in – the growth and multi-fold expansion the NGO base that should’ve ideally occurred, didn’t really ensue. Irony oscillated between two extremities: UN-addressed-humanitarian crisis prevailing and critical scarcity of NGOs. As a result of which, I was told, there’s an acute dearth of...
Perhaps I didn’t think this through. It is past midnight and we still haven’t wrapped this up. For reasons unknown to me, the management of an event goes on even after two hours of its conclusion. It is just another chance to mess up and be yelled at. Misleading title aside, internships can be pretty...
We often stumble upon opportunities we thought we’ll never get. And I got such an unanticipated opportunity at my workplace in the second week of my internship, which was, of course, a pleasant surprise. After getting over the intimidating first week and trying to adjust to the new daily routine, I rejoiced at the idea...
