SPRAT offers various internships. But please note that SPRAT's Internship is not any holiday tourism, nor 10 to 6 mundane professionalism. It is more like 24x7 engagement, ashram-like, all the time involving learning, sharing, & caring. You are expected to work hard, systematically, with humility, passion, and confidence, but with the fullest liberty to question and learn. While productivity is emphasized learning and working are made great fun and lively. It would help if you are nocturnal (no knowledge of Islamic theology, nor of prior publishing nor of publishing techniques is demanded).
