 Internships you can do while studying a bachelor of arts in India

I highly encourage working while studying, not a 9 to 6 job more like a contract-based, part-time job in India. As it helps you understand your subject and practice your subject every day.
Content writer- Start looking for content writing jobs over the subjects you have chosen during your bachelor in arts period. I suggest websites like INTERNSHALA, INDEED AND GOOGLE SEARCHES they helped me earn a few rupees.
NGO volunteer- Though this might pay less or close to nothing the experience is emotionally very rewarding, the certificate counts highly. I can suggest some organizations since my sister being a BA psychology student in Mumbai volunteered in few of these organizations – VISION RESCUE, THE MOVEMENT, TEACH FOR INDIA, GOOGLE SEARCHES.
Start a blog- I suggest blogger.com or WordPress as it is almost free. 
Teach English- Lots of kids in India need an English tutor that is where you step in and earn. In India, we refer to it as Tuitions.
