MOP-Bazaar

An overwhelming talent and potential from the bold and beautiful ladies of MOP Vaishnav college was displayed at the MOP bazaar, an event which gets a huge crowd every year. Its 15th edition, this year, was deemed a success by the attendees, especially the male crowd, who were spellbound to see skill and beauty under a single roof.

Some of the guys present at the venue said that this event was their best chance to enter the women’s college.

“Initially it was the thrill about being able to enter the college, but after coming here I feel embarrassed that we don’t do things like these girls. This bazaar is full of talent. Some of them are even potential entrepreneurs,” said Naveen, student from D G Vaishnav College who had visited the bazaar for the first time.

There are quite a few who are regular visitors to the MOP bazaar. “Though the business dealt here is mostly with women-oriented things like accessories, clothing and foot wear, their skill in convincing people shows their professionalism and braveness. I am totally impressed,” said Vishal.

Some real time entrepreneurs who visited the bazaar acknowledged this talent and even accepted to include them in their business. “I have been visiting this for years and every year it’s getting better. They have been trained well by the college and their entrepreneurial skills is exhibited at its best here. I am even thinking of involving a few women in my garment business,” said P Mohan, a garment shop owner from T Nagar.

This year the number of stalls has been increased to 92, which also includes a few stalls by alumni and community service stalls that help the needy. Sujatha Jacob, additional director of Tamil Nadu corporation for Development of Women, inaugurated the bazaar.

She said that she was completely impressed by the talent exhibited by the students, who give the credit for their success to Rosy Fernando, entrepreneurship development specialist of MOP.

By weekend, the footfall exceeded 15,000. There are stalls for car accessories, eco-friendly products, handmade corporate gifts, ethnic wears and mouth watering chats.
