“Not me but you”

The NSS symbol is based on the "Ratha Chakra" of the Konark Surya Temple in Orissa. The Giant Chakra depicts the cycles of creation, preservation, and release and signifies movement in life across time and space. The design of the symbol, a simplified form of the sun's chariot wheel, primarily depicts movement. Chakra refers to the progressive cycle of life. It also signifies dynamism and progressive outlook of youth.
