What can be more rewarding than a Member of Parliament introducing you his legislative aide!! Or, what can be more fulfilling than seeing the private member bills you worked on in the Rajyasabha website, as introduced in the parliament! My life as a LAMP fellow is filled with such little joys, contentment, pressure and tension, almost every day, of assisting a Member of Parliament to frame his opinions on a wide range of national and local issues. The LAMP journey so far was a great learning and nurturing experience. Every single day at work is different here; new people to meet, new issues to research on, new perspectives to explore. Over the monsoon and winter sessions of Parliament, I have worked on exciting topics from different fields- sometimes fields of study which I was completely new to- Bankruptcy laws, Rights of persons with disabilities, parliamentary oversight of regulatory bodies, environmental governance, and so on. I have got opportunities to take part in discussions with activists from different fields with my MP, I have heard my research points being quoted during parliamentary debates, I have sometimes gone crazily stressed about doing quality research on a topic in an hour or so. But the highlight is, on a daily basis I get time to discuss political issues with an Member of Parliament and I contribute to his decision making, through my research! Thanks to LAMP fellowship, that I get to see my nation closer, through the lens of a policy maker!
