Annual Report 2018-2019 26


It is a moment of immense pleasure for me to showcase
the first edition of annual newsletter of the NSS Unit of
our college. The society provides a stimulating ambience
for the learners.

The students have always strived to incorporate the tag
line “Not me, but you” in their lives in true sense. Their
initiative in social events like project Navoudit, Road
safety week, Diwali celebration, Kerala donation camp,
etc., deserves a whole of credit. This newsletter
showcases all the efforts and hard work of the fellow
students who continuously try to carry out every activity
with utmost perfection and thus turning out the results to
be much stronger and more optimistic. This society is
proved beneficial not only for honing the man
management and social skills of our students but in also
developing a spirit of economical responsibility among
them. It is a manifestation of everything that the society
Hard Work, Sincerity, teamwork, and a well-rounded
image of the various perspectives of the students towards
the society.

I wish the team best of luck for their future initiatives and
I hope that the team will continue to achieve the epitome
of greatness, the eminence of which will be illustrated in
the contingent editions of this newsletter.

“The highest education is that which does not merely
give us information but makes our life in harmony with
all existence.” ~Rabindranath Tagore

It gives me immense pleasure to introduce SANKALP-
the very first online edition of NSS SACE newsletter by
our NSS volunteers. This newsletter is conceptualised by
NSS SAC-E president, Isha Kushwah, who has taken the
initiative to motivate others by providing a platform for
students to get prepared to face the societal challenges.
Being an active member NSS volunteers would have the
exposure and experience to be an accomplished social
leader, an efficient administrator and a person who
understands human nature. In one word it is the
confidence of a person which matters a lot to do
something for the society and to feel the pain of others.

Confidence to express,
Confidence to visualise,
Confidence to learn,
and most importantly,
confidence to speak.

Inspiration comes from different sources even a bleak
and difficult situation can inspire many. I believe my
volunteers will prove it by understanding their
responsibility towards society and will do proper justice
to NSS motto, NOT ME BUT YOU!

They are the real source of inspiration for the NSS.

Thank You!




Keep your dreams alive, understand to achieve anything requires
faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and
dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who
believe. Whatever you go into, you have to go in there to be the
best. There are no formulas. It's all about determination. It might
look glamorous, but it takes a lot of hard work. The blessing with
the arts is that you can do it forever.
So, with immense pleasure, we are proud to showcase the first
edition of our annual Newsletter.


It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.
If you are working on something that you really care about, you
do not have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.
If you have a dream in your sight, start working towards it
because if you are good enough you are old enough.


Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win
championships. If you want to achieve something badly, then
your body will never listen to your mind.



Permanence, perseverance, and persistence in spite of all obstacles,
discouragements, and impossibilities: It is this, that in all things
distinguishes the strong soul from the weak.


There are two kinds of people, ones who want to be the best and
ones who want to overcome the best. Now you have to choose what
you want to be. Be a Man worthy enough to make the goddess of
victory stand by your side.


Every man who walks on this planet, just once in his lifetime

Yes, you are absolutely correct (you are such a
genius), education can play a significant role in
controlling all the crimes and evil practices. But the
question arises, how can we educate them? There
are a few ways to do that. Firstly, parents and
teachers play a major role in the development of
their child. They should give equal importance to
the ability of children to differentiate between right
and wrong, as they give to academic subjects.
Secondly, addressing the crimes against women
like rape, domestic violence, dowry and many
more, mothers and sisters play a significant role in
the thinking and mindset of their sons or brothers.
So, they should educate them what kind of
behaviour is correct and which is wrong with
women. Thirdly, the punishment for these crimes
should be strict and the judgment should be fast.
The delay in judgment or a wrong judgment
empowers and motivates many more criminals like
them, thus increasing the crimes thereof. Therefore,
these points shall be taken into notice and educating
more and more people can control these crimes.

“Education’s purpose is to replace an empty mind
with an open one.” ~Malcolm Forbes

Education is about knowing your skills, abilities,
and learning, and then using them in the right
direction at the right time. Educational institutions
can make all the students literate but cannot make
all of them educated. Education changes a person

● India is experiencing a great revolution in toilet-building.
● Before Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power, below 40 percent of the country's population had

access to a household toilet, a situation he committed to change by investing billions of dollars.
● He launched the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan i.e., Clean India Movement campaign on October 2, 2014 with

the goal of eliminating open defecation and manual scavenging within five years.
● Since the campaign was launched, 80 million toilets have been built in India so far.
● In total, 419 districts are now classified as being open defecation free.
● The share of the population with access to a toilet has also been climbing steadily and it currently stands

at 89 percent,

Woman must not accept; she must challenge. She must not be awed by that which has been
built up around her; she must reverence that woman in her which struggles for expression.

~Margaret Sanger

Women’s day is a special day allotted by the
UN for the identification of women as a
respectable part of the society. But do you
really think that posting pictures of your
favourite woman on social media or wishing
every female in your life is just enough? No,
not really!

A husband should celebrate women’s day only
when he feels that his wife is no less, whether
she is pretty or not, whether she is earning or
not, but she is equal to him.

A father should celebrate women’s day only
when he does not discriminate between his son
and daughter. A son should celebrate women’s
day only when he learns that his mother is not
his servant but his progenitor, the one who is
equally responsible for bringing him to the
world and deserves as much respect as that he
gives to his father.

A brother should celebrate women’s day only
when he stops seeing his sister as someone
vulnerable, a liability and treats her with full

in the Kargil War. The event was held under the aegis of the

National Social Service Scheme (NSS) of the college, led by Dr.

Kalpana Rohit, under the leadership of the principal, Dr. Namita

Rajput. On 26th June, 1999, the mission in Kargil was declared

successful. The Pakistani forces had been defeated and driven

out of the captured territories of Kargil region in Jammu and
Kashmir. The day had been declared ‘Vijay Diwas’, and remains

a landmark achievement in Indian history. The citizens of the

country laud the grand victory of our nation, and the countless

sacrifices made by our soldiers. The gallantry of the Indian army
remains etched in every Indian’s heart. The event was held in

college to acknowledge the efforts and gallantry of Armed

Forces in the war to protect the nation. The students, faculty, as
well as administration, gathered together before the “Wall of
Heroes”, and sang patriotic songs to commemorate the day. The

heroes of the nation were remembered and praised, and their will

and courage, celebrated.

The Music Department, under the guidance of Dr. Renu Rajan,

lead the singing, and the halls of the college reverberated with

the music of nationalism. The gathering then observed a minute

of silence in gratitude of the brave soldiers of the country.

Finally, the teachers, led by the principal, offered flowers at the

portraits, to pay tribute to the fallen heroes.

The NSS Unit of Sri Aurobindo College (evening)
organized a Christmas celebration on 23rd December
with the children of Digital Shiksha Foundation to
enumerate the vivid colours and exuberance on the
occasion of the birthday of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ
was coronated as the enlightened who guided people
to supremacy and the reason behind celebrating
Christmas is to spread the light in the lives of the
people. The National Service Scheme unit of Sri
Aurobindo College Evening decided to celebrate the
day with underprivileged children. The volunteers
visited Digital Shiksha Foundation (N.G.O) who is
looking after these children to make their lives
sustainable. Competitive events such as singing,
dancing, role playing, painting, poem recitation etc
were organized and prizes were also given. We also
distributed stationery items, eatables and finally ended
our gala time by cutting a cake with satisfaction that
the kids enjoyed the time spent with us. Joy and
happiness on those little kids face truly reflected that
we achieved our aim of spreading love and kindness.



NSS unit of Sri Aurobindo College Evening

out to be a very innovative and most effective way
of generating awareness regarding health benefits

These tests were highly supported by the active
participation of the staff as well as students of the

On the occasion of NSS DAY, the

volunteers organized an awareness
campaign street play on “SWACHHATA
HI SEVA”. It highlighted the damage of

the surrounding areas by Ganpati Visarjan,

the casualness of students towards

spreading waste, resource waste during DU

elections, waste collected at celebratory

areas such as marriage halls and pent

houses and the effects of all the above

mentioned on human life.

Cleanliness is the issue which should be

given the primary importance and the street

play was a positive step towards it.



The NSS unit of Sri Aurobindo college evening
has participated in Navoudit project, which aims
to provide a platform for underprivileged kids to
bring forth their hidden talents. Several
competitions like science model, street play,
yoga, wealth out of waste etc. were organized for
them. All the volunteers went to their allotted
centres, with dedication and willingness, to teach
under privileged kids for different competitions
and brought out the best in them. Volunteers had
worked hard throughout the project tenure with
sheer passion and excitement because for them
working at their best for society is not just work
but a duty to perform. Volunteers trained these
kids for a period of one month.
Finally, the hard work and dedication of our
volunteers paid off. Kids in the supervision of
volunteers participated in various activities and
won several prizes. These young shining stars
were fabulous and fantastic, and not to forget our
volunteers, in the hustle bustle of this mega
event, motivated kids and managed all the work
with ease and utmost dedication. “All’s well that

Diwali is a festival celebrated by Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, and Newar Buddhists. They all celebrate Diwali for

different reasons but they all symbolize the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good

over evil and hope over despair. However, this festival is now celebrated worldwide without any

foundations and in India, almost all people now become a part of this auspicious and full-of-light festival.

While the majority of people tend to celebrate this festive occasion by lighting up crackers and having

sweets with their close ones & relatives, there are some people for whom this occasion is all about sharing

the happiness with everyone around them as much as possible. NSS SACE celebrated this victory of good

over bad with those senior citizens who were ignored by their families, but without whom this life would

be so much more difficult.

The whole team of NSS went to the following 4 different places on 2nd and 3rd November:

1. Vardhan Hospital. 2. Malviya Nagar Market.

3. Tamanna Special School. 4. Gyandeep Growth Foundation.

Vardhan Hospital
Vardhan Hospital is a senior citizen center located in
the vicinity of New Delhi’s Malviya Nagar. Our NSS
volunteers went there to celebrate Diwali with old age
people. The volunteers interacted on various subjects
with them and kept an indulging conversation going on
at the center. There was a dance session as well, which
was highly supported and motivated by the residents at
the Senior Citizen Centre. The NSS Team went to the
center on 3rd November.

Malviya Nagar Market

Some volunteers reached the Market area of
Malviya Nagar and decided to celebrate Diwali
with shopkeepers and vendors by distributing
sweets among them. The team went to the market
area on 2nd November.

Tamanna Special School

Tamanna Special School is located in Vasant
Vihar (South-West Delhi). It is a non-profit NGO
for multiply challenged and autistic individuals.
The volunteers went to the NGO on 3rd November
and celebrated the day with mentally-challenged
children. There were several games and activities
in which the children participated enthusiastically
and thus this visit was a great success.

Gyandeep Growth Foundation

Gyandeep Growth Foundation is an NGO whose primary
motive is to help the underprivileged, financially weak
children to fulfill their dreams of pursuing their
education, vocational training, hobbies, alternative
career, or sports etc.
The NSS Team visited Gyandeep on 3rd November. The
visit to all the aforementioned places was a huge success
and the event was truly worthwhile. NSS SACE is truly
proud to work towards the betterment of the nation by
