Republic Day, the day our democracy was established, the day our founding fathers laid down the foundation of the biggest democracy in the world. Every year, with great pomp and vigour, we celebrate this day in memory of that one day, 68 years ago, when every citizen of India was finally granted their fundamental rights. But we must not forget that with rights comes duty, comes responsibility. The path to greatness is riddled with many hardships and obstacles. Only by helping up our disadvantaged comrades can we build towards a strong ,safe and prosperous future. As our glorious Republic enters its 69th year, let us do our part for the community; for the community will be the rock upon which we will build the monument of our dreams.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL. Today, some of us are waiting eagerly for Santa Claus and some of us are going to be the Santa Claus.There will be shopping and gifts; trees and lights, but Christmas is a little more than that. It's about spreading the love- a timeless message, Christ lived and died for. There are kids out there for whom Christmas means nothing,
for whom decoration is nothing more than the feast for eyes,
for whom Santa brings no gift.
In the light of these facts, it... fills our heart with joy unspeakable to say that NSS, IIT GUWAHATI has done a great job in giving this gift of joy to many in many ways.
The significance of Christmas lies not just in exchanging gifts but extending the warmth of our heart to those who are in need.If we sincerely want to move to the "kingdom" of Christ, we must spread love and joy;
and the more, the merrier. Wishing you all, a merrier Christmas.

“Education is the foundation upon which we build our future”

Education is a fundamental right of a person, as after all education is the premise of progress in every society. Yet millions today lead their lives in ignorance, moving about aimlessly in this world, never unlocking their true potential. The light of education has never shone on them.

On the birthday of our first education minister, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, let us carry forth the torch, because as much the uneduc...ated have a right to education, the educated have a responsibility to spread education.

Let’s no longer keep our eyes closed and walk past the uneducated, but open our arms and take them in.

A billion lights illuminate the earth as the nation comes together to celebrate the festival of homecoming. But ensconced in a bundle of joy and comfort, we easily forget that some unfortunate souls in this world don't even have a home.
So let's celebrate this Diwali by providing these people the help that they need. Instead of spending money on crackers, those meaningless bundles of bright lights and loud sounds, let us spend them on humans who need it, and derive joy from their blessings, a sense of elation that crackers cannot hope to match.
In the spirit of Diwali, let us restore faith in humanity. This Diwali, let's light a diya in someone else's life.

NSS IIT Guwahati wishes you a Happy Diwali

The superiority and toughness of the Indian Armed Forces needs no introduction. The Indian Air Force forms one of the three pillar...s of the Indian Armed Forces. The IAF aims to overwhelm the adversaries with application of aerospace power in defence of the nation. There have been numerous instances when our Air Force has proven its mettle, whether it be in the combat or be it in the various peace and rescue missions. You might be wondering what it is like to serve the nation by being a part of this esteemed service which executes such sensitive missions.

In this regard, the Rights and Responsibility Club is organizing a talk to disseminate awareness about the Indian Armed Forces, their importance in preserving national integrity and their contributions to the nation. To enlighten us, would be present the Air Cmde Shashank Misra VM and other Air Force Officers from the Air Force Station, Guwahati. By means of this lecture, we aim to inspire the youth to serve the country by fulfilling their societal responsibilities and aid the Armed Services in preserving national security and interests.

The talk will also be highlighting the career opportunities in the Indian Air Force along with an overview of modern air operations/ rescue missions in order to motivate the youth towards fulfilling the above mentioned objectives.

Henceforth, we would like to welcome you all to be part of this talk and get a glimpse of the experiences of the soldiers of the Indian Air Force. Don't miss this chance of interacting with these brave hearts.

Refreshments will also be served prior to the talk.

Visaka or the Vittiya Saksharta Abhiyan is a program launched by the government of India to enhance the growth of a cashless economy in India. While a cashless economy will be a boon for the country, the shift to this cashless economy will be a long process where all of us will have to work collectively.

Keeping this in mind, NSS, IIT Guwahati conducted various surveys and awareness sessions in the areas surrounding the IIT Guwahati Campus. The NSS team visited markets in Faculty Gate, Amingaon and also in the campus to kickstart the cashless transactions in these areas.
