But I know some seniors who are facing difficulties in completing their NSS hours. Is NSS actually so difficult?
'Nothing in the world is difficult, it is only our own thoughts that make things seem so.' Completing hours in NSS is not a difficult task at all. The easiest way to complete your hours is not to think about it. There is plethora of activities in NSS which happen throughout the year. You just need to find the activities which are meant for you. If you are able to find them, you'll start loving this work and completing hours will become a piece of cake for you. So, just keep your eyes open and have a heart for the world!
Is NSS just about the conventional social service? Where is the fun involved in it?
The answer depends on how you define the term? conventional social service. NSS is all about bringing happiness in life of people around us, directly or indirectly. We try to make this world a better place to live in; socially and environmentally. If you think that bringing smiles to someone's face comes under conventional social service, then yes, NSS is just about that. Else, we are much more than that. To know if there is fun involved in it, you need to get involved in it. The kind of happiness that you will get by adding smiles to someone else's life is difficult to describe in words. We are not selfless bunch of students; we do it because we find fun for ourselves in it. Join us and explore the answers on your own! :)
