The National Service Scheme, popularly known as NSS comes under the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports Govt. of India and is launched in Gandhiji's Birth Centenary (100th) Year 1969 to primarily focus on the development of personality of students through community service.
We, the GLC NSS unit, a unit comprising of about 50 active volunteers, welcome anyone who is ready to venture out of his/her comfort zones and make a difference to the society.
The NSS motto "NOT ME BUT YOU", abided by all of us, NSS members, reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service. It prompts you to develop appreciation to the other person's point of view and also show consideration to other living beings as you inculcate the undying lively spirit within yourself to provide welfare.
The NSS symbol has been emanated from the giant Rath wheel of the world famous Konark Sun Temple (The Black Pagoda) situated in Orissa, India. The wheel portrays the cycle of creation, preservation and release - indeed implying the continuous striving of NSS for social change. While the 8 bars represent 24 hours of a day, their red colour signifies the lively, active, young blood of the volunteer - full of high spirit. The Navy blue colour indicates that the NSS unit is tiny but considerable part of the cosmos to work for welfare of mankind.
Some of the main objectives of National Service Scheme (NSS) are :-
i. understand the community in which they work
ii. understand themselves in relation to their community
iii. utilise their knowledge in finding practical solutions to individual and community problems
iv. practise national integration and social harmony
And in practice, we, the GLC NSS members, become arguably the closest and the friendliest people who care for each other as we travel together to the places, our University calls, or the places our unit has adopted.
