Motto of NSS:

                “NOT ME BUT YOU “ is a terse expression. All the surface level it appears to be very simple & short but behind it lies a lot of meaning. It is very deep and suggestive & is keeping with the spirit of service for others.

                The expression stands for two things:

  1. Forgetting & surrendering the self & rendering selfless service to other.
  2. The word ‘ Not before Me ‘ is to reduce the self to nothing & the word ‘But’ before ‘You’ can be explained as follows :

“I do not live for me but for you. “

“ The world is not only for me but also for you.”
