Vardini Prakash stated in an interview that there are many women among the manufacturers of the products distributed in Hypermart. Vardhini says that the hypermarket gives a lot of importance to locally manufactured products. Women’s enterprises are encouraged at home. A woman who makes papads under the Amma Papad brand is a single parent. 22 types of pappadam are made and sold through hypermarkets. There are other women who make sweets in the unique flavors of Thrissur and sell them in packets.
Pattabhiraman behind the success
Anyway, it is very interesting that two women who are sisters in a joint family are working side by side to grow the business. Their elder sister Vardini Prakash says that business should not be seen as a job. Business is fun when you spend time looking at it as a hobby. Otherwise there will be a lot of tension. Vardhini and Madhumati come to Pattabhiraman’s family without any business background. But both of them say that the support they got from their family helped them to progress in the business. Pattabhiraman’s support made him go into business. In an interview, Vardini herself stated that the ideas she gets while talking to her father and her father’s experiences are helpful in moving forward.
Vardhini and Madhumati come from two backgrounds. Madhumita was a man who left his job in an IT company in Bangalore and came to Thrissur after marriage. The elder sister Vardhini gave only one advice to her sister-in-law after her marriage. “We are two women in a family with only a father and two sons. We are sure to have differences of opinion. If anything happens, we should talk to each other. We have to settle our affairs between the two of us. It should be shown that the saying that if women come, the family will be broken is wrong. “Anyway, with the strength of this one group, not only a joint family but also a family business, they are moving forward beautifully..
