I spent ten weeks in the summer of 2011 working as a health intern in Bangalore through a program called Youth for Seva (YFS).  YFS is a local volunteer project of the NGO Hindu Seva Pratishthana, which aims to encourage and facilitate service among the youth of Bangalore.  Aided by monies from the Brandeis-India Initiative Fellowship, I was able to pursue this internship as my first trip to in India.  I intend to record the details of my experience here.
