There was no looking back since then. NSS Program Coordinator responsibility came in July, 2010 (Link). Senior students came with donations for instituting scholarships for village school children (Link). And NSS, IIT Kharagpur found a place for itself in in the front page of IITKGP website in the NSS Day 2010 function (Link, Archive). To have easy updates on our activity, we launched NSS Blog in March, 2011 (Link). NSS newsletter was also launched to have higher impact (Link).
There was a requirement and thought that may be I can give sometime to another EAA program that was asking attention. It had about 900 students enrolled and there was a great opportunity to serve. Started building team and motivating ourselves (Link). The program was launched in Feb., 2013 and was a success from Day 1 (Link). The journey in that program is captured there in regular session-wise updates. It took some effort from me to be consistent on that front but it had a great effect in launching a big program with so many students being addressed together. Without fail, a mail used to reach every student every TUE and FRI motivating them for the WED and SAT early morning field activity. There were many special activities. Students came up with newsletter for this program too (Link).
Comes July 2014 and the new academic session. It is time to hand over the charge to next in command in this EAA program and post the last one here (Link). Is it time to revel in the joyful and satisfying experience of this EXTRA academic journey? There was a Scholars' Avenue article in March 2013 (Link). The title chosen by the students showed why they are our greatest teachers - and what we think as extra is essentially the core of our existence.
