This plus two student is busy balancing education and business
Aanakkara: When the school bell at Kadathallur Gokhale Govt higher secondary school rings at 4 in the evening, most of the Plus Two students will run to the ground to play cricket and football. Some others will be playing in their mobile phones.
But Musavil will be busy experimenting the theories of economics, that he learned in school, in real life with the help of his own startup – a road side eatery.
Every evening, Musavil’s head and heart will be on the road side eatery functioning at Vattamkulam junction. By the time the school bell rings, Haridas, who works at the shop, wold have filled the glass cabins with tea-time snacks like parippuvada, bonda, baji and others. The water for tea would be bubbling on top of the gas stove. Musavil needs to get to the shop before daily wagers returning home after work gets to Vattamkulam junction. Only then will there be brisk business. This has been Musavil’s routine for the last two years.
Musavil started the shop after Class 10. Earlier, the shop was at Ayinkalam. When road widening works started there, he shifted the shop to Vattamkulam on the Padinjarangadi-Edappal road. Every day, Musavil goes home after school, keeps his bag and books in his room, changes his uniform and comes to his beloved shop.
Once Musavil comes to the shop, Haridas would leave. Then Musavil is the owner, supplier and cashier at the shop. The business which starts at 4.30 will go on till the snacks are sold out.
Musavil, is the eldest son of Mujeeb and Shaiba of Kadathallur and is a Plus Two Commerce student of Kadathallur Gokhale Govt higher secondary school. His sister Shaima is a Class 10 student. Mujeeb is an attender at T.I.U. P school in Ponnani.
Musavil started this startup to cover his education expenses without troubling parents. He was interested in business from a young age. That’s why he chose Commerce for Plus Two.
After Plus Two, Musavil wants to study BBA. After securing good scores in Class 10, Musavil is trying to replicate the result in Plus Two along with in his business.
