KOZHIKODE: The achievements of the Entrepreneurship Development Club of Zamorin's Guruvayurappan College here, which had published and marketed books, were in focus at a UGC - sponsored national seminar held recently at the college.

Within a span of three years the club brought out six books. The students themselves marketed the books. Besides these publications, the students scripted another success story by marketing tender mango pickle and chilly dried in curd.

The students also run a telephone booth. Seminars for young entrepreneurs were also being conducted every year. Appreciating the activities of the Entrepreneurship Development Club, P.K.S. Raja, who inaugurated the seminar, hoped the club would instil in the students the confidence and unflagging enthusiasm that were needed to achieve success in life.

Women empowerment

M.P. Veerendrakumar, MP, while lauding the students' efforts, emphasised the need to instil in women entrepreneurial spirit since their lot had to be improved considerably if the overall quality of life of the nation is to be improved.

Specialists from various colleges in and outside the State spoke on different aspects of entrepreneurship in the context of globalisation and the opportunities afforded by developments in the field of information technology at the programme.
