Society needs change and the student community can act as agents of change. Great men in the history of India have been social entrepreneurs.

Hence, social entrepreneurship should be a career option for the present day youth, K. Aludaiapillai, former Member Secretary, Tamil Nadu State Council for Higher Education, and former Vice-Chancellor of Madurai Kamaraj University, said here on Sunday.

Delivering the graduation day address at Kongunadu Arts and Science College, he said that ordinary citizens could set and attain goals while the business sector could provide the necessary funds. “Opposition from family and the compulsion for a steady income are hurdles in the path of a social entrepreneur, but these should be overcome to serve the country. One should shed the outlook of the colonial past and approach life with a spirit of enterprise,” Mr. Aludaiapillai said. M. Aruchami, Secretary and Director of the college, presided over the ceremony.
