Kamal Haasan releases IIT-M faculty?s book

Actor-politician Kamal Haasan on Thursday released a book ‘Thoduvanam Thedi’ (‘In Search of the Horizon’). authored by the IIT-Madras faculty to help grassroots entrepreneurs.

Prof A Thillai Rajan, Prof G Arun Kumar and Prof Saji Mathew from Department of Management Studies took up the program in 2016 to train micro and grassroots entrepreneurs as part of socially-relevant projects of the institute.

It was implemented in partnership with ‘Hand in Hand India,’ a non-profit organisation, with around 400 entrepreneurs in and around Kanchipuram district having benefited.

Releasing the book, Kamal said Thoduvanam Thedi, with its easy to understand narrative, will inspire the first-generation entrepreneurs raring to reach greater heights to realise their dreams.

This publication will also help business students and common man to understand the nuances of running a business.

The objective of this initiative was to pioneer a social concept to enhance the creditworthiness of micro, marginal women entrepreneurs through training and development. The book is being published by Vaanavil publications.
