Work environment and people
The work environment is really friendly and educational and exciting which can be made out from the work at PUCL. There are interns from all over India.
You have to work in teams generally (sometimes working ceaselessly, preparing slogans and banners for the agitation next day), which might lead to lifelong friendships and gives a scope for building team work skills and accommodating differences.
The best thing of working at PUCL is that one learns about Humanity and Dignity. It is a place where one gets to know the true value of every relation. A person also develops many skills. It is a platform where a person learns time management and work ethics.
PUCL provides bucket full of experiences which will be remembered and cherished for the life time.
One can know the realities of life form this place.
It is a platform where there is no discrimination on the basis of gender.
The sense of accomplishment and the happiness which one receives when people thank you for helping them and for your contribution.
The only drawback is you have to bear all the travelling expenses, which is too much.
Nil, instead you will have to bear all the travelling expenses.
There were many lessons which changed my views. Some of them are:
Never feel inferior, everyone is good at something or the other.
It also taught me that we should break our stereotypes and face the reality.
It taught me to help in the name of humanity.
How one can live his/her life to the fullest extent.
It also taught me that gender cannot hold you back from achieving anything.
