Our Vision

Internshala is a dot com business with the heart of dot org.

We are a technology company on a mission to equip students with relevant skills & practical exposure through internships and online trainings. Imagine a world full of freedom and possibilities. A world where you can discover your passion and turn it into your career. A world where your practical skills matter more than your university degree. A world where you do not have to wait till 21 to taste your first work experience (and get a rude shock that it is nothing like you had imagine it to be). A world where you graduate fully assured, fully confident, and fully prepared to stake claim on your place in the world.

At Internshala, we are making this dream a reality, join us!

Meet the team

Sarvesh: The one who started it all. It takes a lot of guts to create a start up and he's the one with all of it. Meet the CEO. Yes, he's got loads of patience and humility. But on that once-in-a-blue-moon day when he breathes fire, no one dares to tread his territory. He's a master manager and rightfully at the helm of affairs at Internshala.
Shadab: The one with the poker face. He can crack a hilarious joke with the straightest face and an equally lame joke with a hilariously delighted face. Sarcasm runs in his blood. Don't take our word for that, talk to him and you will know (we will gladly pass you his number, just ask).
Vikram: The one with the humility. The monk in the team; he probably goes into a trance once he sets his earphones in and starts coding. The only times he comes out of it is when either the CEO calls him or he needs to check the latest football news.
Shekhar: The one with the impeccable taste. His whole world revolves around traffic. During mornings and evenings, he battles the fierce traffic on roads. In between he strives to increase the 'traffic' on Internshala. This towering Bong is the gourmet expert in the team and worships the Beatles and Pink Floyd.
Ankur: The one with the ever-smiling face. He’s got a singular expression on his face- a smile. An indispensable member of the Tech team, he never refuses to any fun activity. Play cricket, he’s in. Play poker, he’s in. Play coding, he’s definitely in!
Aseem: The one with the patience. Prima facie, Aseem's slender frame gives an impression of a freshman sitting in a class of final year students. But his mighty brain handles all the complex technical aspects of Internshala. Mostly soft-spoken, this lad gets brutal only when he is playing Counter-Strike.
Gaurav: The one with the travelling-ka-keeda. Apart from growing a ponytail and taking leaves to travel around, he usually spends his energy in managing the product and disturbing the team for rewriting this description. A gym aficionado, he eats anything according to his in-built calorie counter only!
Shobha: The one who keeps to herself. This doesn’t imply that she’s taciturn. On the contrary, you will always find her talking on her phone, with which she seems to have a ‘saat janmo ka rishta’. Though the HR insists that she talks only to different candidates, we are not entirely convinced.
Amar: The one who loves to explore. You’ll never see him sitting idle; either he will be coding or exploring places. And yeah, never ask him out on a lunch date because you’ll end up only with a glass of juice- his staple food.
Kavya: The one who writes poems. This bibliophile believes that she’s the perfect example of Incredible India; a Mallu, who’s spent most of her life in North India, and loves Chole-bhature more than Appam! A proud PETA member, she loves good food and her cooking skills prove it.
Ferhan: The one with the dance moves. Fondly called as Aslam, he loves to doodle in his free time. If you want to see his uninhibited self, just play a song, and he will own the room. He can also give complex to girls with his silky hair. Just don’t open your lunch boxes in front of him- you will REGRET it.
Saumya: The one who's a self-proclaimed psychology expert. Ms. Funnybones of the team, she can lighten up the mood of the entire office with her chirpiness and sense of humor. Name any funny video clip or Rock ‘n’ Roll song and she would have already seen it. A trained dancer from Shiamak Davar’s academy, she believes in the mantra of ‘just chilling’.
Sapna: The one who loves animation. Thanks to her sweetness, half of the student team is diabetic. The word hard-working is an understatement for her. If you want to see her rare, excited persona, take her to an animated movie. She is also a great singer.
Shivani: The one whose staple food is​ rajma chawal. Famous for creating and gifting unique handmade gifts in college, this designer is passionate about various art forms. An expert in confidently calling others by wrong names, she's crazy ​ for ​ kaju katli and other sweets.
Deepa: The one who's a rockstar. Hailing from Nepal, she's a hardcore rock enthusiast who loves to play bass guitar. Apart from traveling and hanging out with tribal population, she dreams about witnessing Aurora Borealis (Northern Light) someday.
Kishalaya: The one who's​ always late. A startup enthusiast, he even founded a​ Student Activity Cell in his college. He loves travelling, binge watching movies, and ​giving ideas (Whether they are actionable or not is an altogether different story!​)
Avinash: The one who turns into Kumbhakarna on weekends. A collector and keeper of mementoes, he still has his first toy car and most of his LEGO set. A big fan of Marvel and DC universe, he sleeps all day long on weekends and spends his nights on gaming, coding, and binge-watching TV shows.
Kopal: The one whose spirit animal is a sloth. A huge FRIENDS and Roschel fan , she swears that she can never go on a break with her sleep - even during office hours! She calls everyone as 'bro' - yes, even the guys who don't  want to hear that - and dreams of finding her  lobster, a cute dog, someday. Caution: In a meeting, although a rookie in the field of hacking, she can make you feel that your soul is being  hacked  if you dare to look at her while she's taking notes.
Aparna: The one with the shooting skills. When she’s not playing with her pistol or sweating in Volleyball ground, she reads different books on Economics like Fault Lines and The Undercover Economist. Her favorite pastime is  w̶a̶t̶c̶h̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶A̶b̶ ̶T̶a̶k̶ ̶C̶h̶a̶p̶p̶a̶n̶ ̶ using apps like Dubsmash and Pinterest. She likes to read and implement haircare tips, which is evident after taking a look at her Rapunzel-esque hair.
Samay: The one who loves Sher-o-Shayari. Hailing from Chandigarh, he actually loves trekking & adventures and doesn’t say it just for the Roadies audition. Ironically, he’s stuck in the dusty streets of Gurgaon now. A dramatics enthusiast, he misses doing street plays and makes up for it by his theatrics in everyday conversations. A fan of Ghulam Ali’s works, he tries his hands at poetry from time to time.
Harsh: The one who hates bike rides. A huge Manchester United fan, he once played FIFA with his friend for 14 hours straight! He loves FRIENDS and has watched the complete series thrice. His zodiac sign is Leo and he thinks that he's awesome (we would rather not comment on the authenticity of this).
Payal: The one who single-handedly manages the royal treasure. When she is not busy answering ‘Why that much amount has been deducted from my salary?’, she likes to unwind by indulging in art and craft. She wants to take it up a notch by learning caricature art.
Raghav: The one who talks in cliches. If traveling was free, he wouldn't return home - but it's not and so he's working in the meantime. This wannabe writer is so lazy that he couldn't even write 2 lines when asked to write this introduction. Yes, the irony is not lost on us.
Arun: The one with the inquisitiveness. Apart from improving the number of married members in the team, he also improves the video content quality of our online trainings. He likes learning about new technologies and googling unknown Indian historical facts. He's also been an accidental wedding crasher and would love to tell you all about that!
Aayushi: The one who's a self-proclaimed culinary expert. A complete foodie, she claims to have tried every famous (and not so famous) food joints of Delhi. Though she doesn't know cooking herself, that has never stopped her from being a food critic! An ardent fan of Coldplay, she likes to turn the music up, losing herself in the songs while shutting the outside world - after all, every teardrop is a waterfall.
Smriti: The one who needs her 'Me time'. An awfully quiet girl and a closet poetess, she gives the 'I'll kill you if you talk to me' look until she decides to reveal herself. And if she makes fun of you continuously, you can finally count yourself as her friend! A big-time bibliophile, she reads so much that her mother has to lock up all her novels in a cupboard. Shhh...her mother doesn't know about the e-books on her phone!
Unnatti: The one who's haunted by humans. An aspiring novelist and a Haruki Murakami aficionado, she has read Sputnik Sweetheart 31 times! She is more comfortable with horses than humans and can't sleep without reading a few pages every night. She also claims that she's extremely weird - living in her own Norwegian Wood, with her chronicles, on the shore, thinking about what are men without women - and we can't deny that!
Akshit: The one with a weak spot for candlelight dinners. Apart from traveling, star gazing, and trekking, he also loves working - yes, we'are not kidding (and hopefully, neither is he!). He's been a part of our ISP team for 2 years and is now the only team member to be  featured in the two sections of this page!
Parinay: The one with the perpetual gluttony. A die-hard fan of Linkin Park, he enjoys all genres of music; however, he becomes comfortably numb when it comes to rock music. Once he also decided to come out of his 'bhukkad' nickname -  he tried so hard and got so far, but in the end, it doesn't even matter - his friends (and of course, the food) made sure that wasn't going to happen.
Amanpreet: The one who's usually her bubbly self. Yes, she stays cheerful in every situation. We believe that she watches quiz shows like KBC every night; after all, asking continuous questions is her favorite pastime! She's also an adventure junkie and so when she's not involved in social work, she's either traveling or playing sports.
Aditya: The one who loves travelling. Apart from enjoying occasional off-roading with his friends, he is passionate about research. He is a big time foodie and loves to try different cuisines, so if you're planning to have lunch with him - open your tiffin at your own risk.
Bishal: The one who is an adventure freak. Apart from increasing the number of foreign employees at the company, this data scientist plans to join the Everest base camp trek once he finds a team (adrenaline junkies, are you listening?). An avid fan of sci-fi movies and mystery novels, he also loves to explore new places.
Sumit: The one who belongs to the School of Rock. This programming geek enjoys electronic, instrumental, and atmospheric music and occasionally obsesses over the original scores of films, TV shows, and video games! At times, he also dreams of composing music and playing the piano but hasn't actually done anything about it - except for his rendezvous with a Casio keyboard.
Sehal: The one who is obsessed with cameras. This filmmaker and video editor is highly inspired by Andrew Kramer, Sam kolder, and Majid Majidi. He always carries his film-making gear in his bagwati, just in case an idea strikes. Apart from showing off his acting skills whenever possible, he studies traditional Arabic grammar and writes (terrible) Urdu poetries. Though he is obsessed with Harry Potter and keeps the Elder wand with him (to save the world from dark wizards), his two true loves remain to be cats and chai!
Trinkush: The one who is a minimalist. An engineer by degree but a designer by choice, he is a young gun loaded with creativity and dreams and is always in a tryst with typography and tea. He is an avid fan of suspense and horror movies but animation takes his heart away (ladies, you have your cue!). A firm believer in the impact created by smiles, he enjoys solving Sudoku, making crafts, and playing outdoor games.
Sheetal: The one who claims to be paradoxical. This shy introvert sings a lot but considers herself tone-deaf. She drinks chai and reads books by budding authors as she likes to find different and original ideas, but grammatical errors, not so much. Being stuck here with finding grammatical errors in the internship posts is her latest paradox!
Snigdha: The one who supplies food. Yes, she always has an extra tiffin, serving the hunger of other team members. This bibliophile is a hoarder with about 200 (thousand) books in her TBR pile. She also loves writing but cringes every time someone reads it out loud. She is hell-bent on calling every grown dog a puppy. She found her love for momos much later than all the kids of her age so now, she is the only one constantly pining over momos.
Purnima: The one who is a die-hard fan of Arsenal. She is an avid traveler and could build a home in Himachal. Apart from reading, she spends her day stalking dog pages.
Aayushi Singh: The one who has a chill personality. This movie buff wouldn’t care even if the office was on fire. Her love for history and portrait photography is just another example of her complete fascination with exploring everything possible. If there’s one thing she’d give up annoying the HR manager for, it would undoubtedly be sleeping.
Sunidhi: The one who is a social butterfly. The only extrovert in a team of introverted and socially awkward beings, she has taken it upon herself to make a different name for the media team. This tomboy absolutely hates pizzas and doughnuts (yes, we’re losing our minds!) and can survive on idlis and dosas.
Ashank: The one who was raised in the arcade. This player lives by the mantra, 'Eat, sleep, game'. When not finishing off enemy teams on PUBG with a pan, he can be seen scribbling short stories. He might listen to Black Sabbath but is a real softie on the inside. Dogs are his kryptonite, and while watching 'Hachi', he swore he was only crying because those damn ninjas were chopping onions again!
Parama: The one who is wired differently. Yes, she claims to be an odd combination of cynical and optimistic. An introvert with humans but over-friendly with dogs, this teaholic cannot think clearly without one dozen cups of tea a day. She fancies seeing the world through the eyes of different people and thus, reads as many novels as she can lay her hands on
Samanta: The one who is a gameaholic. She kills her time playing every suggested game on play store - from puzzles to first-person shooter and mystery solvers. This dancer, though paid not to sing, religiously keeps track of the pop music industry.
Abhinav: The one who is a party animal. Ask him for a party and you’ll never hear a no. When not out partying, you could find him reading or gobbling down food. This gallivanter is also a part of the traveller's cult, so if you can't find him in the office, it's safe to assume he is out on one of his trips.
Prashant: The one who loves his laptop more than anything. This meme lover can only be seen with his laptop orr mobile in the most isolated areas. He just needs momos and spring roll for his survival.
Kuhuk: The one who is obsessed with science. This coder usually has two moods - “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo” or “3-2-1-0-LIFTOFF” - and nothing fascinates her more than astronomy. An Imagine Dragons fan, she is habitual of being mistaken for a school kid. When not dealing with her OCD, she watches sci-fi movies and dreams about keeping a pet lion.
Venkatesh: The one who is not from South India. Being a Bihari with a South Indian name, half of his life is spent in convincing people about his native city. He doesn’t like FRIENDS at all (yes, you can judge him all you want). This cricket connoisseur can be your Wikipedia if you want to learn about startups and economics.
Divya : The one who is a feminist in making. She’s a graduate in social work and believes in the joy of giving except when it comes to her sweets. She is also a mom to a 6 year old labrador and a part-time dancing queen.
Vaishnavi: The one who is a sleepyhead. This psychology graduate has an undying love for momos, cricket, and earrings. A Virgo by birth and a Punjabi by heart, she is obsessed with social media and is a hardcore coffee lover. Her bubbly personality makes her the go-to person whenever one wants to lighten up the mood.
Vertika: The one who is an introvert until she spots a mike and an audience(mehfil). Depending on her mood, you might find her doodling or composing shayari! This shayar also indulges in writing but refrains from calling herself a writer. The quickest way to lose her in a conversation would be to talk about any GoT episode. She claims she has not watched a single episode but we have our suspicions.
Ayushikha : The one who is 6 feet 1 inch tall. She treats the ground beneath her feet as her personal fashion runway. She is a hardcore K-pop fan and a BTS stan. She’s a dog mom without a dog and an avid manga reader. This charming extrovert is always ready for a chat over some chai. She is so good at hugs that her college literally gave her an award for best hugger.
Harshita: The one with a Ph.D. in Kendrick Lamar’s raps. She’s enthusiastic about dogs, watching reruns of Parks and Recreation, and buying more books than she can actually read. When not working, she moonlights as a sex-ed teacher for underprivileged kids. Her other passions include fitness, baking, and bad puns.
Gayatri : The one who is Ms. Congeniality. She won HT City’s Fresh On-Campus and can’t help bragging about it. This musicophile feels that everything that goes around in her life should have background music, just like in the movies. At Internshala, she keeps herself busy by diving deep into the corporate oceans and finding yet unfound talent.
Smriti R: The one who is the list queen and feels listless without them. She loves poetry, blog writing, and anything to do with a camera. Smriti takes time to open up, but coffee can perhaps do the trick for she’s a coffee lover. She aspires to go on a solo trip with her polaroid to a quaint place and explore all the coffee shops. Her pet peeves include prime numbers, dogs (a brave confession), and people who waste water.
Mohit: The one who loves dining and dancing. He spends his downtime satiating his wanderlust in picturesque places like Leh, Srinagar, and Auli. He claims to be happily married and loves watching Breaking Bad when he wants to watch a series.
Amisha: The one with the gift of gab. This self-proclaimed introvert can be seen hanging around humans at all times, and you can mostly find her discussing her views on gender equality, human philosophy or something absolutely absurd. A firm believer of mental health over everything, she usually resorts to art (be it painting, literature, or cinema) as her form of therapy. Her ultimate calling, she believes, is travelling full-time, and while she's at it, she hopes to publish her own book/s someday. At Internshala, you can either find her taking naps during her 'busy' hours or brainstorming ideas to build a top-notch product.
Akash: The one who is the Ghalib of the team. This cricket enthusiast loves reading and writing sher-o-shayari and claims to be good at it (honestly, we don’t want to find out). Much like his idol Captain Jack Sparrow, he is a firm believer in Carpe Diem.
Sagar: The one who can’t get enough of Bollywood. His undying love for Bollywood is all he needs for a date. He also has attachment issues with tea and rajma chawal and cannot bear the thought of sacrificing them for anyone but Dhoni.
Surbhi: The one who is a mountain girl through and through. Although she’s initially shy, you can expect magnificent memes of yourself when you befriend her. This Pink Floyd fan also loves trekking and photography.
Vansh: The one who is a marketing wiz and boxer. When he’s not reading about global affairs or doing his bit for society, he likes to find comfort in butter chicken and momos.
Anjali: The one who is anti-introductions and would love to press skip on all of them. She hails from the mountains but hates the sound of solitude for too long. She’s also a photography enthusiast who wants to travel the world and capture it with the best angle. Bring this fitness freak some chicken and momos and watch her transform into your best friend!
Arjun: The one who has done far too much in life. He has done a master’s in physics, worked as a teacher at a school in Nashik, and holds a student pilot license. That isn’t even everything! He was even awarded as the best NCC cadet from Kerala & Lakshadweep NCC Directorate in 2009. He is also an avid basketball player who is turning into an emerging badminton player at Internshala. His mantra is "I am a fighter and I won't give up".
Keshav: The one who is a fitness freak (but still devours chocolates and cheese). He believes he has perfected the timing game when it comes to humour or sarcasm but this talent remains to be proved. He feels recharged in the company of people and strives to do good. He loves getting into the nitty-gritty of everything (take the cue at the right time and you may be able to save yourself).
Rabani: The one who is always down for pizza. She is a movie and TV buff, and she loves everything and everyone from Noah Bombach to Dan Harmon. She’s also skilled in playing the piano.
Naman: The one who is always up for performing Bhangra. He is also a start-up enthusiast who loves tapping into his curiosity and trying different things. But when it comes to food, he likes to keep it old-fashioned and nothing can woo him like maa ke haathon ka rajma chawal and kadhi chawal.
Latika: The one who is a harmonium player. She loves Netflix but has a tough time warming up to any series because she’s too in love with F.R.I.E.N.D.S. When she’s on a break with F.R.I.E.N.D.S, she sees romantic movies. A big animal lover, Latika believes that cats are her spirit animal. Her love for animals compelled her to make a life-altering decision of turning into a vegetarian and she hasn’t looked back since. An outing without golgappas is an incomplete affair for her.
Ayukta: The one who is an advocate for power naps at work. When she’s not working (staring at the ceiling for writing ideas), she’s daydreaming about parallel universes, the afterlife, or any existential topic you can think of. She doesn't think of herself as artistic, but her relatable doodles prove otherwise. She believes all sweets deserve an equal opportunity.
Kartikay: The one who is a Kit Kat hoarder and perhaps your best bet in the office for a quick chocolate fix. This ambivert loves being spontaneous(even if it means being stuck on a mountain which he was!). Being stuck at home on a holiday is his worst nightmare and he turns to binge watching for comfort.
Dipanita: The one who dreams big. She is a positive, passionate, and happy-go-lucky kind of person. If you play your cards right, she may serenade you with her beautiful voice! She completed a Visharad in Hindustani Vocal. When she’s not learning new things, she’s exploring new restaurants, going on long drives, or shopping.
Himani: The one who is a rebel. Himani is a rebel because she goes travelling despite her parents telling her not to. She’s a foodie who still manages to diet. Catch her busting a move on the dance floor at parties. She loves watching sci-fi on Netflix. Need a shopping buddy? hit her up and she’ll take you to H&M.
Shiwangni: The one who doesn't do anything half-heartedly (even her bucket list ended up being as large as the universe). As a graphic design enthusiast, she weaves her ideas of the world into her visuals. She has chosen the fiction world as her humble abode. If you ever find her sobbing in a corner, it’s probably because she's grieving the death of her favourite fictional character. She's also a huge Lana Del Ray fan and likes you already if you are one too.
Vijit: The one who is an art and design geek. When he’s not catching up on the latest in the world of aesthetics, he likes chatting about politics and history. Good food, great vibes is the mantra he swears by, and he loves being the boy with the bread.
Shalin: The one who is never without his flute and earphones (even when he has forgotten an important folder). His love for harmony extends to his work ethic and you’ll hardly ever catch him without a smile. A business-oriented person who spends a small amount (we definitely doubt that) of his time in personal grooming. He is drawn to anything that smells like team spirit and is always up for sports, especially adventurous sports. Traveling through mountains on a bike gives him peace.
Abhishyek: The one who is forever ready to play badminton. This state level player has lost count of the number of times he has injured himself. He is remarkably good not only with investigating data but also with locating the person eating momos (don’t say we didn’t warn you). Apart from playing badminton, he spends his spare time listening to new renditions of old songs, playing chess, and solving sudoku.
Ashutosh: The one who is always having a Eureka! moment. He loves travelling and photographing the adventures and misadventures while he is at it. This wanderer wants to try everything under the sun. He has already tried his hand at boxing, lawn tennis, table tennis, badminton, and athletics yet remains keen for more.
Urvashi: The one who is a chatterbox. Nothing warms up her soul like listening to stories and endlessly narrating her own. She is also irrevocably in love with beautiful skies, red velvet cheesecake, and Shah Rukh Khan. This curious soul is always up for coffee and conversation or a prank.
Gaurav D: The one who is the ultimate chess master. He is always ready to battle it out on the chessboard. He also likes problem-solving and gathering knowledge about mysteries, facts, and history. A custom trip to Japan is his dream destination. He lives by his personal philosophy of "take big actions to achieve big dreams". This foodie will never say no to some chole bhature followed by a hot gulab jamun.
Saikat: The one who is a national soccer player and can’t stop bragging about it. He describes himself as a reticent human who dreams about settling in Himachal and fantasizes about biking around the world. In his downtime, he plays the guitar or a chef in the kitchen. His ideal moment would be, sitting on the edge of a cliff and staring at the perfectly textured mountains.
Anjali T: The one who likes Manga. Anjali cross-stitches and reads Manga comics. She once slept for 21 hours straight. Electrical devices are her enemy. Want her to be her travel buddy? then bribe her with food.
Sarvari: The one who is a singer. Although she has learned classical music for 9 years, she is mostly drawn to light Hindi music now. She also loves donning her chef hat and gives all unhealthy recipes a healthy makeover. Her kitchen experiments ensure that you can have your cake and eat it too without guilt! However, good luck getting your hands on the recipes, which are trade secrets because she loves to let people wonder!
Sakshi: The one who is a bookworm. Stephen King is her go-to writer while Lemony Snicket is her all-time favourite book series (are you sensing a pattern here, too?). Her literary love does not end at reading as she also indulges in writing poems. When she’s not reading or dreaming about her autobiographies, she gets busy doodling or cracking puns. She loves plants and is a sucker for succulents.
Shubham: The one who is a big Chandler Bing fan. Unlike Chandler, this one’s crazy about dogs and would jump at the chance of petting a dog all day long. His love for memes helped him uncover his love for design
Anuj: The one who codes in contests. Anuj is a football lover, the only thing he loves more than the Brazillian football team is their golden boy Neymar Jr. When Anuj isn’t competing on CodeChef, he’s watching Friends and playing PUBG with his friends.
Avinash B: The one who loves minimalism (so much so that he used emoticons instead of sentences to describe his interests :P). His hobbies include listening to music, reading blogs, and craving for biryani. He is also head over heels in love with hill stations.
Saurav: The one who likes to code like playing a favorite song on repeat. When he catches a break from coding, he likes to play volleyball, hang out with friends, and watch web series. IGI and PUBG are his favorite video games, and he argues that killing enemies during PUBG can significantly reduce exam time frustration!
Ayan: The one who has got the moves like Beyoncé. He has danced alongside Tiger Shroff, Remo D’Souza, and Terence Lewis. He has also bent it like Beckham as a football captain for his school and college team. When he is not dancing or playing, you will find him strumming his ukulele.
Himanshu: The one who is most ardently in love with Batman. He is always up for meeting new people because he believes everyone can teach him a thing or two. He is also into singing, traveling, and monochrome photography. Like Edwin Land, he believes that failures are a key ingredient to keep the creative juices flowing.
Simarpreet: The one who can’t get enough of designing. She has turned this passion into a career and loves every moment of it. She also loves reading books, playing badminton, and eating pav bhaji (there’s nothing she wouldn’t do to have some!).
Ramneet: The one who has a question for every mood. This ambivert’s biggest question in life is whether he likes parties. If you want to entice him to your party, make sure you have golgappas! He loves sketching, playing with colours, and trying his hands at anything new.
Raj: The one who is a retro music lover. Ghazals by Jagjit Singh and Pankaj Udhas soothe his soul. Besides vintage music, he loves old-school games like Prince of Persia, Vice City, and NFS. He adores his family and Jimmy, his pet. If you ever find him lost in thought, he might be dreaming about living in a place which is surrounded by nature and untouched by people.
Aruja: The one who is a fitness lover. She loves running but not away from her problems. When she finds the time to slow down, she indulges in watching web series. Although she gives new shows a shot, her favourite remains the good, old Breaking Bad, which she binge-watches in 2 days. Her favourite people are always in for a treat as she loves cooking for them.
Anuj M: The one who can’t get enough of art and design. This aspiring creative director loves experimenting with doodling, sketching, and working on abstract illustrations. His other artistic pursuits include exploring music and strumming the guitar. He also loves trekking and playing football.
Ishaan: The one who has a weak spot for chole bhature. He likes to binge-watch thriller movies and TV series, with Breaking Bad being his all-time favourite. When he needs a break from work, he loves travelling to the hills.
Vandana: The one who loves stories. This introvert is into reading books and blogs, listening to stories, and making candles. Her free time is also spent in the company of plants, desserts that she bakes, or her mother and sister.
Tanya: The one who views the world as poetry. Tanya is a passionate writer and sees everything as poetry. A lover of everything that’s sweet and cold, she experiments with food and baking. Tanya loves socializing but struggles to start a conversation. However, when she smiles, she smiles with all her teeth!
Anannya: The one who’s an unauthorized shrink. Anannya is an ex-political analyst who ditched the trade in favour of pursuing her passion in the cosmic world of food and art. She’s a talkative Libran who hopes to give a ted talk one day. She’s a budding writer by day, serious baker by night.
Rashi: The one who uses her moodiness to explore everything that the world has to offer. When she’s not jamming on her ukulele, keyboard or flute, she loves devouring crime fiction books. Kind madam and sir, I pray thee to be cautious if you ever find her doodling because she might be in the middle of creating the perfect tattoo art for herself.
Tejas: The one who’s an adrenaline junky. Tejas believes the answer to world peace lies in his mouth-watering recipes. Tejas is a cinephile, he loves Robin Williams. His first ever crush was Juhi Chawla and she still continues to hold that honorable spot. When Tejas isn’t at work, you’ll find him backpacking with his trusty camera.
Rishabh: The one who wants to be a model (but only in France). This die-hard Barcelona fan also loves listening to music in any language. He’s a bit of a shoe-a-holic who will show up late everywhere, but he will laugh at all your lame jokes to make up for it.
Sushmita: The one who likes to stream. Sushmita likes surfing through Prime and Netflix in her downtime. She also loves testing her culinary skills in the kitchen and traveling. Sushmita also likes to write and similar to many other writers, she isn't too social.
Aranta: The one who is mischievous. Aranta was brought up in boarding schools operated by infamously strict Tamil people. She’s adventurous and fearless when it comes to traveling. Aranta is an amateur photographer who’s always on the lookout for aesthetically pleasing views. She dreams of a society free of patriarchy, fascists, racists, and misogynists.

Tina: The one who is into Greek mythology. As an avid reader, she loves exploring the Marvel universe but doesn’t hate DC.

She can start and end a meal on a sweet note.

If you're looking for a lesson in baseball, we recommend you turn off that Google search and set up a call (or a gaming session) with him.
Yash H: The one who is a cat person. If he ever misses your phone call, it’s probably because he is trying to pet a stray that has been evading him for an hour.

With an appreciation for all kinds of music and movies, you may find her watching anything from La La Land to Child’s Play.

His idea of travelling consists of going on a trip to haunted places.

Simardeep: The one who is a journal hoarder. Even though she owns a lot of journals, most of them are still unused as she finds them too pretty to actually use. However, she couldn’t resist using one to pen down her dreams and has been writing in it generously. Besides journals, her heart finds joy in listening to old, wartime music and watching Ghibli movies. This is because she is more of a heart over the head kind of person. Anything with feelings and she is sold! A sky lover, she loves seeing the changing colours in the sky and squeals out of joy every time she sees a rainbow.

Since the birth of Internshala, Professor Idichandy has played the role of an affectionate guardian, mentoring us at each step of the journey. His remarkable career at IIT Madras as a teacher and as an administrator (he was Dean Students before becoming Deputy Director) meant he has a treasure of knowledge when it comes to education (and what needs to be done to fix it) and the role industry-academia interaction can play in driving innovation in the country. His dream project, and perhaps the reason he identified with Internshala so much to lend his support, is to see at least 10% of the final year B.Tech Engineering projects happening in collaboration with industry which in his own words “even if it is 10 percent, the impact will rewrite the history of India”.

Nishikant Dhanke is an IIT Bombay alumnus (Class of 2005) and the first person to believe in the idea to actually put money behind it (and forget it :)).
