Jalandhar: NSS Volunteer- Students of lovely Professional University celebrated NSS Day by caring for 'Prayas' School Special children at Maqsudan (Jalandhar).  For this, 60 Volunteers, under the guidance of the co-ordinators of the community services Cell of the University, massaged the weak limbs of 42 needy and special children of 'Prayas' School, Maqsudan, Jalandhar. Volunteers also entertained and motivated the children through interesting power point presentations, lectures and colourful cultural get together. They served children and staff working there with Fresh Fruit, Fruit Juice, Sweets, Bakery Products and Snacks. It all was also added with a special cleanliness drive by the NSS students in and around the school. It is worth noticing that the school is being run by Red Cross Hospital Welfare Section, Jalandhar.

Expressing happiness on the efforts and activities of the volunteers towards community responsibility, the Pro-Chancellor of LPU, Ms Rashmi Mittal said: "Observance of such meaningful days, following the true spirit of these, is desired and expected of the youth of today. We are very happy that our students identified the right place to celebrate NSS Day on the lines of living and sharing responsibilities." She continued: "In fact, in addition to volunteers, all other students should also be pro NSS activities, as NSS is meant for development of personality of students through Community Service. It also underlines that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of the society as a whole."

It is worth noticing that NSS( National Service Scheme) is a permanent Youth Programme under the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, Government of India, with objectives for youth to understand the community, identify its  needs and problem solutions and to, develop in themselves a sense of social and civic responsibility.  The Director of the school Ms Suvira Aggarwal and Principal Sandeep Setia thanked the volunteers for their missionary zeal in providing massage (Champi) with special soothing oil over children's heads and healing massage on their limbs of general weakness and ailment. Children were suggested to go for strength boosting exercises to get relieved of muscular weakness. NSS Volunteers also sensitized the members of the school staff on health, hygiene and safe drinking water so that ignorant students may not suffer unnecessarily. They also cleaned out the surroundings of the school, its hostel, Mess and made a drive for beautification.

 Some of the participating students to this drive, Juneed Nabi, Sumit Rao, Harkirat Singh, Kiran Thakur, Heena Goel, Priya, Vimmica Anand said : " We celebrated the great day by really being humane to the core. Seeing the special children, we realized the creative power nature and our moral duty for the same. On this occasion, continuous chanting of NSS theme song-' WE SHALL OVERCOME', in our heart of hearts, kept on encouraging us."
