Hi  @keshavkelkar

SASS is an extension to CSS to allow for easier readability and maintenance. It comes with two main syntaxes:

  1. The "old" indented syntax - Sometimes simply referred to as "SASS"
  2. The "new" SCSS syntax which is much closer to classic CSS in the look and does not rely on indentation

You can see a comparison between the two syntaxes in the code samples which have a "Sass" and "SCSS" tab here: http://sass-lang.com/guide

 

So to answer your question: In the Lithium scenario SCSS and SASS are actually the same Smiley Happy The former being the syntax to achieve the latter.

Here's some further reading on history giving a good comparison between the two.
