Jalandhar: Community Services Cell of Lovely Professional University has successfully organized Seven Days Winter camp by NSS volunteers at a nearby village Raipur Prohala. Specially chosen 70 volunteers (49 Male & 21 Female), from 10 Units of National Service Scheme at the University, made their main stay on all the days and nights at Government Senior Secondary School of the village. The concluding ceremony was chaired by Pro-chancellor of LPU, Ms. Rashmi Mittal. The Director General Er. HR Singla and Deputy Diretor, Mr. Aman Mittal graced the occasion as Guests of Honour; whereas, Senior Leader Paramjit Singh Raipur, S Nirmal Singh Sangha, Sarpanch Desraj, Senior Members of Panchayat along with 50 other eminent persons of the village were specially present on the occasion. After welcoming the dignitaries, the Head of community Services Cell presented detailed report about the success of the Camp. The volunteers presented cultural programme in the honour of their all inspirers under the notes of the thematic song - "We shall overcome..."
Having a deep interaction with all the volunteers, Pro-Chancellor, Ms. Rashmi Mittal inspired them to work more and more towards the needs of the society to prove themselves as true citizens: “There is really a great need of many such marvellous camps filled to the core with milk of mankind. That is why we are having 10 Units of NSS at the University. Students should themselves forward new projects and initiatives to eradicate ills from the society." She added: "A day's help to someone does not mean much. Think for the genuine help so that it may be carried forward so that it may prove to be a help throughout someone's life; moreover, students should learn all values preferring their studies."
As per the report, after the inauguration of the camp, the volunteers started with the schedule of cleaning of the entire school campus to make it more habitable; organized a Free Medical/ Paramedical/Physiotherapy/Eyes-Check-up camp, where a Medical Team of 35 Doctors and medical staff from SBRM Hospital of the University, examined 350 patients of the village; whitewashed the entire building of the School; visited Pingalwara & Jallianwala Bagh under humane and patriotic fervour; got spiritually charged by reaching Golden and Durgiana Temples; levelled the boundary wall of the school and village roads; and, swept and cleaned the premises of village dispensary, veterinary hospital and cremation ground. Also, all the volunteers enjoyed daily Morning Yoga, Prayer, Evening sessions comprised of declamation contests, Poetry recitation, Group song, Patriotic song competitions and various sports activities.
On asking volunteers they all said excitedly that it had been a wonderful experience: "We will convey to all other students at the University that NSS is a great platform which surely helps us to make our society filth-free. We all have learnt that serving humanity is real enjoyment."
