Meaning of LIC Logo
Friends, in this post we shall discuss about LIC Logo. The main reason behind this post is… now a days in interviews and written exams of LIC they have been asking about the Sanskrit sentence written below the LIC logo or to interpret the logo. Some of our readers too have been asking about this. So, this post is for them.
Think about life insurance once and the image you’re most likely to conjure up is that of Life Insurance Corporation’s (LIC) logo. For decades now, ‘The two hands gently circling the lamp‘ has been the most enduring image of the life insurance business in India. The logo of ‘Life Insurance Corporation’ is a traditional Indian symbol that stands for light, literally and figuratively. The lamp symbolizes ‘light’- light that sheds darkness and brings hope. And the hands symbolize “to secure / to protect”. The purpose of ‘LIC’ is indeed to bring back ‘light of hope’ into the lives of many people.
Sanskrit Sentence written below the Logo (slogan of LIC) :
The Sanskrit sentence written below the logo is “योगक्षेमं वहाम्यहम्” (Yogakshemam Vahamyaham) which is derived from Bhagavadgita (22nd Verse of 9th Chapter). Which means “I shall ensure the safety and well-being of my devotees” (actually told by lord sri krishna about his devotees) we can interpret it as “we take care of health needs / we are responsible for your welfare”. This slogan conveys the actual intention of lic. Hope it helps :) You can read more study materials of LIC AAO Exam from here. All the best and happy reading :)
