NATIONAL SERVICE SCHEME (NSS) CELL 

SREE CHAITANYA COLLEGE, HABRA

 

 

1. Basic Concept of NSS:

 

The overall aim of National Service Scheme as envisaged earlier, is to give an extension dimension to the higher education system and orient the student youth to community service while they are studying in educational institution. The reason for the formulation of this objective is the general realization that the college and +2 level students have a tendency to get alienated from the village/slum masses which constitute the majority of the population of the country. The educated youth who are expected to take the reins of administration in future are found to be unaware of the problems of the village/slum community and in certain cases are indifferent towards their needs and problems. Therefore it is necessary to arouse the social conscience of the students, and to provide them an opportunity to work with the people in the villages and slums. It is felt that their interaction with the common villagers and slum dwellers will expose them to the realities of life and bring about a change in their social perception.

 

2. NSS Wing at Sree Chaitanya College, Habra:

 

An NSS unit of our college started functioning from May, 2016. The unit provides scope for the student-volunteers to participate in such social works as Health Issue, environmental Issue, Campus cleaning, literacy centre for the illiterate and coaching classes for poor school boys of the locality, relief work, gardening etc. This unit has planned several activities during the academic year '2016-2017'.

UG 1st year and 2nd year students of all arts and science departments of Sree Chaitanya College, Habra are cordially invited to join NSS (National Service Scheme) activities of this college. Interested students are requested to contact the NSS Programme Officer (SCC, Habra) Dr. Biswanath Sarkar, Department of Political Science. There is no entry-fee.

3. The Motto:

The Motto of National Service Scheme is "NOT ME BUT YOU", reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for self-less service. NSS helps the students develop appreciation to other person's point of view and also show consideration to other living beings. The philosophy of the NSS underlines on the belief that the welfare .of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of the society on the whole and therefore, the NSS volunteers shall strive for the well-being of the society.

4. Aim of NSS:

6. NSS Symbol:

The symbol for the NSS has been based on 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 and signifies the movement in life across time and space, the symbol thus stands for continuity as well as change and implies the continuous striving of NSS for social change.

7. NSS Badge:

 

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