The logo was taken from the design created by late Mr. R. Simhachalam Naidu (Father of the Director) for a primary educational institute established in the year 1984. The symbol infers, "The knowledge gained from the literature (an open book) distributed as rays (the jyothi or light) to awake the inner dreams of the students". As years passed the original insignia was lost but the insight and dreams remained. In June 2006, a designer named "Mr. Nazir Khatry" (from Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh) with his splendor, emotional and colorful insight has created an emblem that has been accepted as the flag of "Sevas Educational Society".
India does not need to be industrialized in the modern sense of the term. It has 7,50,000 villages scattered over the vast area 1900 miles long 1500 broad. The people are rooted to the soil and the vast majority is living a hand to mouth life.
Reference: Gandhiji wrote to Sir Danial Hamilton in a letter on 15-2-1922 from Bardoli
Sevas encourages advanced technologies but mainly concentrates on employment generations. Gandhi's concept of Ideal village or Gram Swaraj can be achieved by establishing more small scale industries/small scale services with advanced technologies on par with big industries.
