NADA INDIA FOUNDATION and this
experience really stood out as one of the best! The variety of the projects was

OPINION Drug Free India? ....... Prof. T K Thomas 26 Feb, 2019 Two weeks back, this column carried a piece entitled “Hooch Victims: Not Just Numbers!” about death of over 40 people after drinking illicit liquor. A bigger hooch tragedy last week killed over 150 tea garden workers and over 300 hospitalized for critical care in Assam’s Golaghat.

Dr.Antra Singh* A typical day in the life of an NGO intern during the times of virtual reality & #COVID19 The compelling part of this reality is there is no “typical day”. Some days I just sit in front of my laptop and create, edit training modules, some days are just attending meetings and discussions with my team, and some days I go crazy preparing, reviewing, organizing material. Some days are unstructured and filled with chaos. And then there are even days, I do nothing. Nothing at all. All this, in the midst of attending my virtual classes, as a student of public health. When I think about the journey so far, it has been nothing but a quest to look deep within my own self, surprisingly. My work as and intern @ Nada India Primarily, my work in the NGO Nada India Foundation involves preparing and conducting training sessions, as a peer supporter.
