Motto of NSS
“NOT ME BUT YOU”
Though it appears to be very simple and short but has a very deep meaning
hidden within. It suggests a spirit of service for others. It stands for two things:
- Forgetting and surrendering self.
- Rendering selfless service to others.
The word ‘NOT’ before “ME’ is to reduce the self to nothing and the word
‘BUT’ before ‘YOU’ can be expanded as follows:
“I DO NOT LIVE FOR ME BUT FOR YOU”
