Indranarayanpur Nazrul Smriti Sangha is a Non Governmental Organization which was founded on 2nd October 1978, by a group of dedicated local youths, inspired by the rebel poet Kazi Nazrul Islam. INSS very first interaction with the local problems came in the form of the 1978 floods during which the organization played a major role in providing relief and rescue to the affected population. The organization was formally registered in 1981 under societies registration act. Since then INSS has gradually shifted its focus from a relief & charity based mode to a more integrated development approach emphasizing basically on disaster preparedness and rehabilitation.
