In India, the idea of involving students in the task of national service dates back to the times of Mahatma Gandhi, the father of the nation. The central theme which he tried to impress upon his student audience time and again, was that they should always keep before them, their social responsibility. The first duty of the students should be, not to treat their period of study as one of the opportunities for indulgence in intellectual luxury, but for preparing themselves for final dedication in the service of society.
With this ideology, National Service Scheme (NSS) was started with a motto, “Not Me But You”. The NSS unit at SIBAR Institute of Dental Sciences is a proactive wing which conducts regular social activities outside the dental domain aiming at the upliftment of living standards in the societies it serves. Some examples for these activities include the conduct of Swacch Bharat and the Diabetes campaigns.
The institution takes pride in the fact that one of our NSS volunteers, Dr. Pranoti Prashant Hiralkar, post graduate student in the Department of Public Health Dentistry, participated in the Republic Day Parade, New Delhi in 2019. Also, Dr. Vivekanand Kattimani, Professor, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, at SIBAR Institute of Dental Sciences has been appointed as the NSS program Coordinator, NSS cell of Dr. YSR University of Health Sciences.
