The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre (IEDC) and Institution Innovation Council (IIC) jointly organized a special event named “Oottupura” to welcome the festive Onam season. The event was conducted on 29th and 30th of August 2022.
The term “oottupura” means refectory or eating- place. And as the name suggests it was an Onam special hub of delicacies. There were 12 food stalls representing each department of the college. Each stall included various food items like pickles, chips, snacks, payasam, etc. which made us reminiscent of the Onam season that everybody missed celebrating due to the pandemic. There were other non- edible items as well in the stalls – mehandi, scrunchies, etc.
Along with the food stall IIC and IEDC were also able to set up a stall of handloom clothes in association with Co- optex. This stall included handloom sarees, set mundu, dhoties, churidar materials, etc.
The event was a huge success with the help of the students and teachers of the college. Students, even from the nearby institution (Al Ameen college of Medical Sciences) also came and supported the event.
