Maybe you are asking yourself: why India? For Brazilians, India definitely is a different world, no doubt. India is amazing, but unfortunately many people just can see the barriers that living here could bring to them. On the other hand, if you are a person that is willing to discovery a new world, ideas and new ways to drive the life, India is the right choice for you, and the barriers, believe me,
will be just a small dust. After some time living in India I figured out some similarities between Brazil and India, as different people living together, colors of the clothes, mixture of religions and so on. For sure, now the Indian culture is part of me.
And a part from the culture, Indian economy is growing very fast, as Brazilian, and it is very
interesting for us, Brazilians, to pay attention in what is going on here. A country with many issues
to be solved, much more than in Brazil, is a huge challenge for local governments and private
companies in trying to develop this country. Working in India definitely brings to us a new vision
about what is development and how to face thousands of obstacles. Business between Brazil and
India tend to increase year by year, therefore I recommend come to India in order to give a boost
to your carrier. An Indian experience can be the differential in your CV that you are looking for.
MY EXPERIENCE IN PUNE
Pune is one of the best cities in India to live, definitely. Under a fast development, many
opportunities and quality of life you can find there. Many international students are living along with
students from different cities in India (and countries), what makes Pune an amazing city to live and
full of funny moments!
You are going to go out at night with Brazilians, Germans, Iranians, French, Polish and others,
travel many times to Mumbai to have fun or enjoy the night life there, and travel to many places
nearby Pune during the weekends (and everything is very cheap!).
If you are coming to Pune and want more information, please feel free to contact me.
My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you in Pune!

The next day started at 9:00 am with breakfast at the club house. The boys were then treated by Naomi to their first burgers, French fries and coke from McDonald’s. They then left for the Pune Blind School for an introduction to Braille and interaction with the students there. Here, the teachers took them to each department within the school to demonstrate how the children learn how to dance, play musical instruments, read etc. The boys got an opportunity to interact with the blind children in their scouting activities where they helped them to dig and carry heavy items across the field.

There can be identified several different reasons for people to go on an internship and I guess people have very different reasons to put the studies on stand by and challenge themselves through a professional experience such as an internship abroad. My own reasons to go were both personal and professional. I had just finalised my Bachelor degree in Political science and need a break from the books before entering the final stage of my education. Second reason was connected to a lacking knowledge and professional experience which I needed to choose the right master program and to find out what I actually could do in my future career. I was well aware of the fact that my internship might not provide me with a complete picture but it might guide me or at least show me some of the work roles that you find in companies. Finding out what you don’t want to do can even be a very useful and educational learning to gain from an internship. The professional experience: The professional part of my internship at L&T Infotech was perhaps the most challenging experience I met in India. I was to work with business development in an IT company which seems quite far away from Political science. Further more the daily work would be conducted in cooperation with only Indians located partly in Pune and partly in Denmark and Sweden. The core work I was doing with L&T Infotech was marketing, sales and strategy work focused on Scandinavia. The working experience showed me that there is a huge gap between knowing the theories in the books and actually solving the problems in a real company, dealing with real issues, real people, real money and not least dealing with an entirely new industry. All these challenges both culturally and professionally made this internship extremely valuable to me and I would almost say I learned as much more during those 5 months as I have done during my Bachelor. At least the character of knowledge I gained in Pune is something I can use the rest of my career and something that for sure will give me a head start compared to those who “only” do the books!! At the end of my internship I was given a very interesting opportunity by the company. I was given the opportunity to work with the company from their Copenhagen office while completing my master studies at Copenhagen Business School. Since my master program is focused on how multinational companies act on a global market this opportunity was almost tailored to me and something that has made this internship even more valuable for me and even for my future career. I have also been offered to write my master thesis with the company so the impact of the internship actually goes far beyond those 5 months. The personal experience: When I decided to go to India I knew that this internship would give me a personal experience. I have earlier travelled in South America and seen cultures completely different from the Danish. From the very first day I spend in Pune I could see that this was going to be a very challenging experience on a personal level. India is so different from what we know in Europe. The similarities between India and Europe are almost non-existing which demands quite some tolerance and cultural understanding to be able to adapt and enjoy the culture. Cultural understanding has been around as a concept for quite some years but it is actually becoming increasingly important to gain cultural understanding as the interaction between Europe and India or China is increasing. Gaining understanding of the Indian culture is therefore essential for our future interaction with the country. Having stayed in lived in India I can see that there are many areas where we differ significantly. Level of hierarchy in any social setting or organization, way of communication, religion and personal values in general, the role of work in life. I could go on forever. Actually you really have to search to find the similarities between India and Denmark but I guess that might just have been the main reason why I found India so incredibly interesting. My internship with L&T Infotech was from a professional point of view a very good experience. I got challenged in all the ways I was hoping but I certainly also got challenged in ways I would never have imagined. I can therefore say with confidence that I got more out of my internship that I could have hoped for.

Here's the case study of Kim, who had come to Pune as an intern in the Footprints project to work with the NGO named Youth League Recreation Centre
Only 3 days remaining and then I will leave Buldhana. What an experience it has been.. Buldhana is a backward area in
The second welfare organization is the Love Trust for Indian Children in Need. As the name already states, this is a lovely organization that takes care of unwanted children and unwed mothers. Unwed mothers can stay in the mother care center for a few months and deliver the baby free of charges. The baby will be nursed at the baby care center. After 2 months the babies are free for adoption. Abandoned children till the age of 6 years can also stay in the Love Trust. The main aim of the Love Trust is to find a family for these unwanted children. In last 10 years 255 children have gone for adoption. As a Trainee you can help a hand with caring for the babies. The interaction with the aayas, nurses, in the Love Trust is great and they will try to involve you with their work as much as possible. To raise awareness for the Love Trust, it is important to visit nearby village doctors and give information about the work that is been done. As a Trainee, it means a lot if you attend these doctor visits, the experience of seeing real Indian living standards in the villages is eye-opening. Above organizations are run by the lovely Agashe family. They speak well English and will always be a helping hand for you. A Trainee has her/his own room with bathroom and toilet. There’s even a cook who will prepare real Indian food for you daily. The accommodation is basic, but nice and clean.
