The motto or watch word 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 the other man’s point of view. It also shows consideration for fellow human beings. It underlines that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of the society on the whole. Therefore, it should be the aim of the NSS to demonstrate this motto in its day-to-day programme.
The symbol is based on the “Rath” wheel of the Konark sun temple situated in Orissa. The giant wheel portrays the cycle of life with creation, preservation and release.
It signifies the movement of life with time and space. The symbol stands for continuity as well as change and the continuous striving of NSS for social transformation and the alertness and readiness of the NSS volunteers all the time for the substantial goodness of the society and for the benefit of others.
The NSS Symbol is embossed on the badge. The wheel on the badge has eight bars, which represents 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 color in the badge indicates that the NSS Volunteers are full of blood, i.e., lively, active and spirited. The Navy blue color indicates the cosmos of which the NSS is a tiny part ready to contribute its share for welfare of the mankind. The NSS volunteers should wear the badge while doing social services.
