And with these feelings man always tries to do something for his fellowmen. And this sacred service which is done by one individual or group of individuals for the betterment of the society, in one way or other, is called Social Service. Social service is a very good qualitywith some people. But each and everybody should culture this habit. A social servant is welcomed everywhere. Because he is the most useful member of the society. He knows his duty towards his society.

Man lives in the society. He learns speech, manners and philosophy in his society. He works and moves in the society. He earns his livelihood in the society. Society gives protection to his life and property. So, everybody should serve the society to the best of his capacity. And to do for the cause of the society for its betterment & upliftment is the duty of each & every individuals. As stated above, Social service is service and facilities provided to common people by the government /richer people or group of peoples for their betterment & upliftment, for example facilities like those of education, free medical treatment, free travel, free clothing etc.

Need and Importance:-

Social service is supposed to be the in things in fashion today. However, in a country like India, social service can leave the precincts of fashion and become a very important and long lasting project. In real essence, social service means serving people who are of no personal utility to us. In India where the poor and underprivileged are so many, social service has a great importance and a very large scope too. It is the task of the Government to look after the welfare of all the people of the country but, the
Government alone can do precious little. To help the Government in this task social service organizations must be mobilized to work hand in hand with the Government, only then a substantial result may be felt on the ground. The bottleneck in the functioning of the welfare organizations is the finances involved in any work so, if Government is there to allot funds and welfare organizations to do the work, we can achieve a lot. Thus to make the society / nation prosperous & happy one the individuals should work, in little or more as per their strength & powers, for the cause of society. Such society with full utilization of its human recourses always steps forward & always remains prosperous. 

Students & Social 
In addition to government and social service organizations working towards the goal of social upliftment, one great force in the country can also play very important role for the upliftment of the society. This great force which is an asset of the society is the Student Community. If this commu- nity, consists of young people, full of enthusiasm & zeal for the service of the society, is mobilized to help the Government and welfare agencies, the task will become easier and the results will be more tangible. Since the children these days are more alert to their surroundings, they can be used also for mobilizing public opinion for any task given to them. They can also be used in community projects like, helping the villagers in their pace of progress. This will give them a first insight into what India really is, and they will get a sense of achievement by working for their less fortunate brethren. In this way the stock of the urban student community will also improve by imbibing in them the desire to help others. They will learn that, sharing is the best way to progress. Team work and assimilation with the rural community will become added qualities infused in the younger generation, and we will have achieved our goals of service their magnum support.In the villages, the students can take up massive cleanliness projects, and teach the rural people the necessity of keeping clean, which will automatically lead them to better health standards. In doing this they will also develop the thought of dignity of labor which is sadly lacking in us Indians.

Thus, if the society take into confidence, the student community, and share the problems with them, I am sure they have a great potential of helping us out of the wilderness of illiteracy, health hazards etc. We can take examples of students sharing the social service projects in other countries like Russia and China. If those countries can take the help of their students why can’t we think of it? The students are a tremendous force which, if mobilized, can do magic to our forlorn projects. Besides their helping us, they will also feel all the better for it. In the bargain they will learn a lot, do a lot, and achieve a lot. In this way while they are still students, they will be joining the bandwagon of social workers and participating effective.
