Due to all this diversity, India is difficult to grasp.

Internships in India and China Will Give You an Edge

Why should I do an internship in India or China? Take a look around you. How many students in your school are doing internships in India or China? Not many, I suppose. This by itself is the first advantage of doing an internship there.

Of course, the person with the outstanding internship!
