NSS activities are imparted to fine tune the students attitudes, values, beliefs, motivation desires, feelings, eagerness to learn, willingness to share and embrace new ideas, goal orientation, flexibility, persuasion, futuristic thinking, compassion, and various skill sets of communication, etiquette and manners so that they will be able to deal with different situations responsibility, which strengthen the student from within. Their skills empower them to understand “Who they are” and how best they can come across as competent individuals in any given situation. It helps the student to grow as a key leader in the establishment. Technical professionals need a combination of technical skills, business skills, and interpersonal skills. If a technically proficient Engineer is not willing to expand expertise into leadership, maybe he or she is not the best fit for an eventual Managerial role.
Objectives of NSS in the curriculum:
The motto or watchword of the National Service Scheme is : ‘NOT ME BUT YOU’. This reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service and appreciation of the other person’s point of view and also to show consideration for fellow human beings. It underlines that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of society on the whole. Therefore, it should be the aim of the NSS to demonstrate this motto in its day-to-day programme.
