A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

Recent political trends in the country have clearly shown that the people, particularly the youth, are disgusted with the level of corruption prevailing in the society at all levels and in all spheres of life. Youth must come out strongly against such corruption which is destroying our moral fabric and weakening our moral fiber. To begin with youth must understand what are the means available to them to stand up against corruption and oppose it.

The PCGTs 'Kuch Aur' programme targets school children so that they inculcate proper values and learn to detest wrong doing including corruption while the "Youth for Governance"programme targets college students to stand up for their rights. The youth is motivated to take on their responsibilities and stand up against all forms of corruption noticed by them in their educational institutions and their localities, bringing these to public notice. This is a step that will go a long way to improve the quality of life in our country.

I exhort all participants in this programme and students in the city of Mumbai to develop a strong dislike for corruption practices and oppose them. I compliment PCGT for taking up this cause in right earnest and helping the students to understand the importance of this campaign and also helping them further to pursue cases of corruption to their logical end.

PCGT is the only place which provides its Interns with equal opportunities to flourish themselves. It was a great exposure, not only to the Right to Information Act, but also

other legal aspects. It was my privilege to intern at PCGT in my first year itself of the Law course.

I interned with Public Concern for Governance Trust during my first year of law school and it was definitely one of the most memorable and challenging internships I have done so far. The different areas of work be it the Youth for Governance Projects or RTI applications & research, gave me an insight into our society and how the law can be used as an instrument and mechanism to make a difference to our community. Under the guidance of Mr. Ranga Rao and Ms.

Shivani Akashi, I was encouraged to look at issues from a different perspective and provide my opinions and ideas on the same. Attending the weekly Trusteess meetings with Mr. Julio Ribeiro who headed the same gave me a different perspective as to how a small group of people with effort and dedication could make a difference to the society we live in. All in all my internship at PCGT was an enriching and great learning experience.

The best part of my experience at PCGT was organising the workshops in various fields like Law , education, business ... where I got a prominent opportunity to interact and transparent my thoughts.

Overall I can summarize my experience working as an intern at PCGT for two months was brilliant which gave me experience and exposures from top to bottom from all the sources and corner where I feel to be very fortunate to be one of the part of PCGT.

I joined PCGT on 1st August, 2014 day where I felt the office environment to be very professional and productive. The day started with the welcome smile of Rashna Mam where I was introduced to every office colleagues and that made the office environment for me to be very easy to work around. I started my day at PCGT by going through the monthly magazines where I understood the basic development in the RTI field of PCGT and the overall progress PCGT is making. The best part of my experience at PCGT was organising the workshops in various fields like Law , education, business ... where I got a prominent opportunity to interact and transparent my thoughts further with personalities like former Supreme Court Judge Justice Krishnan, Advocate General Darius Khambata and senior counsel Aspi Chinoy. The field experience by filing an RTI on the revolving issues in GOWANDI ,matter related to drugs and interacting to mohalla committee people to understand the grave problems around them and their children in their basic education.

There were certain dialogues that were organised where I was given a task to take a session on sexual harassment which helped me to persuade ideas of students from different fields apart from law. The major show time came where I was delegated work and was appointed as head of Logistics dept and I express my gratitude towards Mithun Bhaya who found I am capable of doing my work at my best. This prog was organized in January where Aamir Khan was the Chief Guest of the ceremony graced with the presence of Mumbai police commissioner Rakesh Maria and our Trusteess. Through this programme it gave me an opportunity to have an interaction with Aamir Khan on a question which made the centre of all the media that is also viral on internet and can be seen on youtube. Overall I can summarize my experience working as an intern at PCGT for two months was brilliant which gave me experience and exposures from top to bottom from all the sources and corner where I feel to be very fortunate to be one of the part of PCGT.
