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.
Murthy: The one with the big dreams. He is a dreamer with eyes towards the sky. He mostly stays in his woven world and there are only two things that pull him out of that- his family and his laptop. Though he swears that he loves coding the most, we have our suspicions.
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.
Siddharth: The one with the sweet tooth. If he is asked to choose between a box of sweets and his parents, then after eating half the box, he would apologize to his parents. He’s a trained Tabla player who also excels in sports. He also thinks he’s funny; however, this talent is yet to be proved.
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!​)
Milit: The one with the inbuilt s̶̶̶n̶̶̶o̶̶̶o̶̶̶z̶̶̶e̶̶̶ booze alarm. A part-time senior manager and full-time transport facilitator for colleagues from Delhi, he says "Khidki se kood ja" at least 10 times a day! The unofficial marketer of Downtown Microbrewery, he spends the most of his time convincing people for coming to a party. Though he's the only unavailable Bachelor in the team, you wouldn't believe it if you were to meet him - such is his swag!
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).
Sushmita: The one who tries her hands at everything. To say she loves talking would be an understatement - the whole team can vouch for that. A trained classical dancer, she likes to go on long drives on a bike, and listen to Sufi music or Kishore Kumar when she needs some peace. Her gluttony for meat never comes in the way of excelling in sports - be it Throwball, Handball, or Football tournaments! Planning to lure her away? Just bring any baby animal, and it's done!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Anurag: The one who is a momo junkie. A startup enthusiast who has watched The Social Network more than a hundred times, he wants to try his hand at every thing. He is an introvert who spends his time listening to songs and watching horror movies even though he is afraid of ghosts. He claims that he gets really nervous around girls and all the ladies at the office vouch for this!
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!
Nikhil: The one with the love for history. He likes watching documentaries on wars, terrorism, conflicts, and piracy. Apart from building stories with data sets, he dreams of motorbiking in Ladakh and hitchhiking across South-East Asia.
Rachit: The one who is a mama’s boy. This introvert takes huge pride in sharing his birth date with Sachin Tendulkar; after all, he too hits the bugs right out of the code’s boundary. If you ever look at his laptop screen, you’ll see some eye-pleasing wallpapers or PUBG map.
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.
Hardik: The one who is a computer wizard. This startup enthusiast can be found playing cricket or table tennis when he is not busy winning coding competitions and hackathons. He finds it immensely satisfying to contribute to real-time products.
Divyanshi: The one who is a pizzaholic. She truly believes that pizza is her prince and with it, she can live happily ever after. However, when she is not stalking Domino's, she binge-watches series as if there is no tomorrow. She is a staunch believer of going with the flow and would rather spend her evening in her bed than go out, but don't let this mislead you because if there is a dank party in town, she'll be there.
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.
Kashish: The one who is a travel buff. She gets itchy feet if she hasn't travelled in a while. This adventure seeker is also adventurous with her future plans; yes, she has the start-up bug. True to her aims, she is all about innovating, experimenting, and ideating. You could also take fashion tips from her as she believes fashion is a reflection of one's creativity.
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.
Mahima: The one who is a sleepyhead. Yes, she claims that she can sleep for almost 20 hours a day. A self-confessed Kareena Kapoor fan, she is a huge cricket and theatre fanatic. This environmentalist is known for her bizarre playlist - ranging from songs by Pratik Kuhad to those by Anu Malik.
Shivam : The one who is a problem solver. He is passionate about creating a more efficient world where students can get the best skills and companies can get the best talent. Building day-to-day economical products is the be-all and end-all of his life.
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. While she is inside these walls, she is busy finding the recipe to plant a money tree for college students.
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 she talks for hours no less. Feminism or (lame) puns, the conversation can go either way. She swears that she is a good bibliophile who reads all her books. She is also irrevocably in love with pretty skies and naps during her ‘busy’ hours.
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.
Ravi: The one who is all about the expansion of knowledge. Ravi believes art has no language. He loves watching movies and listening to music regardless of genre or language. He likes to explore, meet different people, and learn about their traditions and cultures.
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.
Ipsita: The one who is obsessed with poetry and shayari. She is always looking for new travel spots and places to eat. She lives on black coffee and shopping. You’ll catch her doodling random figures and patterns. Ipsita goes against the grain when it comes to a few things. She hasn’t watched overly famous shows like Game of Thrones or Stranger Things, she hates dogs and the whole animal planet. Also, never call her because she hates calls and will most probably hang up.
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.
Tushar: The one who has been bitten by the travel bug and is showing no signs of recovery. Having crossed off 13 countries on his “50 countries before turning 30” list, he’s eagerly waiting for his next adventure. He was the first Indian to ever win the UPE ACM scholarship but found fame as ‘tinder god’ in college.
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.
Sakshi: The one who could probably get away with murder (only cause she’s a crime junkie). Sakshi loves solving crime mysteries and scenes, she loves reading thriller and crime novels, and she goes to sleep listening to crime podcasts. Never one to shy away from cracking a pun, she also believes she has the best comebacks. She reads a lot of Stephen King and she’s a Lemony Snicket fan. She aspires to have her own Library-cum-Nursery someday.
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.
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
Somyakriti: The one who will make a joke at a crime scene. Somyakriti flip-flops between being extremely social and being a cave dweller. However, she does like to stay informed about topics such as fashion, architecture, food, art, or design. Somyakriti has also been published a few times! She’s a traveler who doesn’t like the label of “traveler”.
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.
Shahzar: The one who needs an ice cream every time someone screams at him. On other occasions, he is always ready for rosogolla, biryani, and bicycle ride (to avoid a guilt trip from all the calories). His non-food passion includes web development. If he comes off as awkward at first, be patient because it will pass.

Aritra: The one who is a diehard Messi fan. When he is not watching him play, he is busy perfecting his own game both on-field and in FIFA. He is from Kolkata and chances are that you are guilty of mispronouncing his name! Pronounce it as Aritro, and you are good to go for your first conversation.
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.

However, good luck getting your hands on the recipes, which are trade secrets because she loves to let people wonder!

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.

Lapakshi: The one who is an adventure freak. When she was 13, she scuba dived for the first time and has been hooked ever since!

In her everyday life, she loves the caffeine high and is always on the lookout for coffee places. She also loves reading and is always biased towards the book rather than the movie based on it.
Hema: The one who is big on Tamil novels. Everything about that fictional world makes her feel alive. While reading the climax of a story, she slips away from this world and even skips her meals!

Bethel: The one who is a serial overthinker. She is drawn to literature, philosophy, and psychology. She’s at her happiest when she is munching on fast food while loud music plays in the background.

She is also a binge-watcher especially when it comes to The Office. She followed her love for psychology by stepping into the HR role. However, be wary of sharing your handwritten notes with her lest she analyses you in and out with her secret handwriting analysis skill!
Tushar K: The one who is a selenophile (loves the moon, not Selena Gomez). His other nightly pastimes include writing short stories and shayari.

She loves meeting new people but will always prefer dogs over humans any day. Her go-to place is nature, which brings her serenity.

Dr. V G Idichandy, is Professor Emeritus (Former Deputy Director) at IIT Madras. 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”.
Naveen Kukreja is an IIM Calcutta alumnus (Class of 2001) and has a rich global experience in the field of Sales, Marketing, and Analytics in Financial Services domain. A start up enthusiast, he helps Internshala in defining medium to long term goals and staying on track plus actively connects us with people in his network.
GSK Chaitanya is an IIT Madras (Class of 2005) and ISB Hyderabad (Class of 2011) alumnus and a sound board for Internshala since early days. Pre-MBA, he has worked in the infrastructure sector across the spectrum of consulting, planning and execution. His vast network of friends and professional contacts has been a HUGE lifesaver and something that we generously tap into for everything that we need help on.
Kunal Jain is an IIT Bombay alumnus (Class of 2006) and has 7 years of Global Business Analytics experience. Owing to his structured thinking (a rare skill) and ability to always take long term view of things without losing sight of immediate goals, pretty much every new initiative at Internshala is refined basis his inputs.
Ankur Khator is an IIT Bombay alumnus (Class of 2005) and has 8 years of technology experience working with the giants of internet and software industry. He was Internshala’s first CTO (and co-founder) and played a critical role in setting Internshala up for success in its first year of operations and managed technical team and infrastructure.
Ashish Mishra is an IIT Madras alumnus (Class of 2005) and true technology enthusiast at heart with specialization in Web Application Development. Pretty much everything technical on Internshala has had his imprint on it. Be it the initial Wordpress blog that he had set up for us, or rescuing us from the security breaches, or the framework and architecture for the current portal; he is Internshala’s go to person for any advice on technology.
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 :)). His support in very early days was crucial for Internshala to get off the mark and gave rest of the team confidence that they were going after a big enough problem that needed to be solved.
Ruchi Bhosle is in for the love of it than anything else. She was the first friend to help Internshala back in 2011 and donned many hats (marketing, employer relations, tech support, student support) since then till 2013 and played a critical role in setting Internshala up. She has done her B.E in Electronics from DAV Indore and MBA from SP Jain Centre of Management and has 88 months of work experience in-between.
