Speed Post News Network

New Delhi :  The month long Summer Internship Programme of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) concluded in New Delhi on June 13, 2018.  It was inaugurated by  Justice P C Ghose, Member, NHRC, on May 15, 2018. Thirtyseven select students of different colleges and universities from various parts of the country participated in the programme. They included 24 girls and 13 Boys. Three students Isha Mishra, Ayushi Uttam and Sunidhi Pandey got the cash prize of Rs.6,000, Rs 5,000, and Rs 4,000 respectively as the best interns.

Addressing the valedictory function Jyotika Kalra, Member, NHRC, congratulated the interns on the successful completion of their internship. She expressed the hope that they would make the best use of the knowledge gained about various aspects of human rights and put that to practice to defend not only their but also the human rights of others. She said that they should strive for exploring new ways to do things and address the issues facing life instead of falling in the trap of set patterns. She asked them to set priorities in life and move forward without losing hope and faith in their efforts to achieve the goals in the midst of any adversity,according to an NHRC release.

Earlier, Ambuj Sharma, Secretary General, NHRC, said that human rights are the basic edifice on which any nation is built on. Historically, India has a long tradition of a value based society with respect for human rights but unfortunately in the modern days this picture may not be entirely true. The concept and the scope of human rights have been expanding and therefore the challenges for the protection thereof. Hence, it would go a long way if the NHRC interns became practitioners of human rights, he said.

During the course of the internship, the students were exposed to various human rights issues and laws, composition, role and function of the Commission. Besides the NHRC Members and senior officers, some of the other prominent speakers, who addressed them included, Bezwada Wilson,  P K Pincha, Sanjoy Hazarika, Chaman Lal, Ms Bharti Ali and Mathew Cherian.  The interns were guided to choose some issues of human rights for brief research and study to write dissertations. They were also taken for field visits to prisons, police stations and NGO to give them a first-hand account of the functioning of such institutions.
