Insight India was based on giving a greater cultural understanding of our home country, India. For me, the trip proved to be more than just that as it allowed me to expand my skills such as leadership and communication. It made me more open-minded and taught me to give everything a try. Consisting of people from different places and backgrounds made it all the more interesting, in the process becoming close friends. Insight India has certainly been a vital experience and I loved every moment of it.
Having visited India many times before with family, I naively thought that I knew a lot about India and that I was well connected with my roots. But after Insight India programme, I realised that there was so much more to learn. From the culture to the people, I was not only given an insight into the historical background, but I gained so much more from the people in India, and my peers. Their kindness and willingness to people they hardly knew, inspired me to bring these qualities back to UK.
