SOCIAL SERVICE LEAGUE (SSL)

Narayan Malhar Joshi, a leading member of the Servants of India Society, founded the SSL in 1911. The objective of the movement was “to collect and study social facts and to discuss social problems with a view to forming public opinion on questions of social service” and to secure for the masses a better quality of life and work. The league had conducted training programmes and awareness programmes for volunteers, whose services were later utilized for relief work among people suffering from famines, epidemics, floods and other disasters. It also organized welfare programmes among the poor and the destitute. In our college, volunteers are included every year and trained by giving them Awareness and Hands on training programmes which would impart useful knowledge and contribute a more enlightened student community.

NATIONAL INTEGRATION SAMITHI (NIS)

India is a nation of diversities. The people who inhabit this nation belong to different races, communities and castes. They reside in different geographical regions and speak different languages. They practice different religions and have varied cultures. But with all these diversities, they all are Indians and emotional harmony. They may have many religious identities such as Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains or Zoroastrians. They may also be identified as Punjabis, Tamils, Malayalis, Bengalis, Manipuri or South or North or North-East Indians but with supreme national identity. At the same time while mentioning various regions, mountains and rivers, we respectfully acknowledged the unity of our country in its diversity. Our NIS programmes mainly focus on the need to maintain the unity and integrity of our nation. In fact, national integration has been one of the most important priorities of our country.
