MOTTO

              The motto of the NSS is “Not me but you”. It underlines that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent oyn 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.

 

SYMBOL

              The symbol of the National Service Scheme has been based on the Gaint RAth Wheel of the world famous Konark  Sun Temple Orissa,India.The gaint wheel of the sun temple portrays the cycles of creation,preservation and release and signifies the movement in life across time and space.The design of the symbol, a simplified form of Sun Chariot wheel primarily depicts movement.The wheel signifies the progressive cycle of life. It stands for continuity as well as change and implies the continous striving of NSS for social transformation and enlistment.

 

BADGE

               The NSS symbol is embossed on the NSS badge.The NSS volunteers wear it while undertaking any programme 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 young 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.

NSS SONG

            During Silver Jubilee Year 1994 the NSS theme song has been composed. All NSS volunteers are expected to learn the theme song and sing the song during NSS programme and celebrations.
