National Service Scheme (NSS)

Faith
When you give people a share of responsibility in sharpening their lives you increase their self-confidence, with out which they are nothing. When they have faith in themselves, they are prepared to take on even the most difficult problems and solve them. And in order to generate that faith we must first demonstrate that we have faith in the ability of the people to undertake nation-building activities. Faith begets faith and democracy can grow only when the people, particularly those who belong to the lowest itrata of society, accept in fully.

Brief History

Even since independence there has been growing awareness of the desirability of involving students in national service. The First Education Commission (1950) recommended the introduction of national service by students on a voluntary basis. Subsequently on the basis of suggestion made by the then Prime Minister Pt. Nehru, a committee was appointed under the chairmanship of Dr. C. D. Deshmukh to prepare a scheme for compulsory national service by students prior to their admission for degree courses. Prof. K. G. Saiyidain who undertook a study of national service by youth in several countries, recommended that national service may be introduced on a voluntary basis. A similar recommendation was made by the Education Commission appointed under the Chairmanship of Dr. D. S. Kothari.

In April, 1967, the Conference of State Education Ministers recommended that at the University stage students could be permitted to join the National Cadet Corps which was already in existence on a voluntary basis and an alternative to this could be offered to them in the form of a new programme called the National Service Scheme (NSS). Promising sportsmen, however, should be exempted from both and allowed to join another scheme called the National Sports Organisation (NSO), in view of the need to give priority to the development of sports and athletics.

The conference of Vice-Chancellors in September 1967 welcomed this recommendation and suggested that a special committed of Vice-Chancellors should be set up to examine this question in details. The details were soon worked out and the planning commission sanctioned an outlay of Rs. 5 crore for developing the NSS during the 4th Five Year Plan as a pilot project in selected institutions and universities. In pursuance of these recommendations, the ministry of Education introduced the National Service Scheme during 1969-70. The choice of the timing of its introduction was remarkably suspicious as 1969 was the birth centenary year of Mahatma Gandhi, the father of nation to whom social service was almost a religion.

Motto

The motto or watch wood of the National Service Scheme is ?NOT ME BUT YOU?. This expresses the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service and appreciation of another person's point of view and consideration for fellow human beings. It illustrates that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of society as a whole. Therefore, it is the aim of the NSS to demonstrate its motto in its day-to-day programme

The Emblem

The symbol of the National Service Scheme, as appearing on the cover is based on the ?Rath? wheel of the Konark Sun Temple of Orissa. These giant wheels of the Sun Temple portray the cycle of creation, preservation and release and signify the movement in life across time and space. The wheel signifies the progressive cycle of life. It stands for continuity as well as change and implies on the part of the NSS for continuous striving forward for social transformation and upliftment.

Badge

The NSS Symbol is embossed on NSS Badge. NSS volunteers wear it while undertaking various community programmes of community service. There are 24 wheels in 'Rath' of Sun Temple of Konark. Each wheel has eight bars, which represents 8 pahars of day. Hence the badge reminds the wearer to be in readiness for service of the nation round the clock i. e. lively, active and spirited. 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.
