About NSS

Motto

The motto or watchword of the NSS is “Not me but you”. It underlines that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of society on the whole. This expresses the essence of democratic living and upholds the need of selfless service and appreciation of the other man’s point of view and also consideration for fellow human beings. That means an individual who joins in this scheme is moulded to believe that the welfare of an individual is ultimately depends upon the welfare of the entire society. The NSS family members forget their personal interests and dedicate themselves for the creation of a sophisticated society. As for them there will always be a deep concern for the poor and down trodden. The NSS has not only played an important role in involving the youth in community development programme but also provided them an excellent opportunity to grow up as useful and responsible citizens of the country. The Institute NSS Cell functions dynamically with the same motto.

Badge

The NSS symbol is embossed on the NSS badge. The NSS volunteers wear it while undertaking any program or community service. The konark wheel in the symbol has eight bars, which represent the 24 hours of the day. Hence, the badge reminds the wearer to be in readiness for the service of the nation round the clock i.e. for 24 hours. The Red Colour in the badge indicates that the NSS volunteers are full of blood i.e. lively, active energetic and full of high spirit. The Navy Blue Colour indicates the cosmos of which the NSS is a tiny part, ready to contribute its share for the welfare of the mankind.
