A bazaar was organized by 12 student self-help groups at Vivekananda Satavarshiki Mahavidyalaya (Manikpara, Jhargram). The name of the market is 'Vivek Bazar'. A total of sixty students organized the market with their various handicrafts and food items. This bazaar started on 20th of January 2023 under MGNCRE (Mahatma Gandhi National Council of Rural Education, Government of India) unit of our college. The authorities named this market as Vivek Bazar. This market is held once every month in the college premises.

On August 17, 2023 our college completed sixty years of its foundation. On this occasion, the MGNCRE unit organized various programs for seven days (August 10th to August 17th). Seminars were organized on tree plantation, prevention of energy wastage and use of alternative energy, waste management, cleanliness in college premises and adopted villages. At the same time, Vivek Bazar was held on August 17. Exotic food items and local handicrafts were the main attraction of the market. Apart from our college faculty members, alumni, and invited guests visited the market and appreciated the efforts made by our student SHGs. Local delicacies prepared by our students and hygiene at the point of sale were appreciated the most. Almost all the items prepared by the participating students were sold providing small earnings to our students.

Our College Principal Dr. Uma Bhaumik said: “We are overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of our students about Vivek Bazar. I believe that this market will become bigger in a very short time.” Project in-charge and coordinator of Student Self-Help-Groups, Dr Tapas Hait said: “If the first-year students participate in the group this year, the size of the market will further increase and the product range will get more diversified. At present the Vivek Bazar is held once in a month. We have a vision to organize a market every weekend.
