Sri Aurobindo Centre for Advanced Research

Internship Programme

Internship

Internship at SACAR is different than other professional internship programmes. This has been specially designed with two-fold intention


Various disciplines in India these days are incorporating the best of the knowledge that the West provides and that surely brings the syllabi on par with the international standards. However, those cannot be blindly applied to the specific field in India for the simple reason that Indian cultural milieu demands an indigenous system to make it work. What then is the demand of our culture? For this students need to study Indian culture from a different perspective.

This perspective is provided by Sri Aurobindo in his writings on Indian culture, society, polity and the like. His vision of seeing things is new and at the same time it blends well with free-thinking minds of the day

We therefore invite the youth to explore this new dimension and add an inner perception to themselves and the world.


Tasks for the Interns


Project

India on the March

This project aims to bring out 12 or more volumes of research on the development of human society in the light of the evolution of consciousness since the beginning of Indian Civilizations. This is not a project as has been taken up by various institutions the world over which re-reads history from different perspectives. In short, India on the March would be a history of India NOT focusing on Political issues, kings and wars etc. It would aim to study all those events in Art, Science, Culture, Environment and other fields where the stages of evolution are evident.
