P Ponmariappan, a hairdresser and salon owner by profession at Millerpuram in Tuticorin is on a mission to inculcate reading habits amongst the youth. In his salon, he has over 800 books and offers a 30 percent discount to customers who give genuine feedbacks after reading the books. “I did not have the opportunity to pursue higher education but I realized that books can help you a long way in enriching your knowledge. The concept is on lines of a library where people can do both, read and lend books. Initially, it will be open to only students, and depending on the success, I will take the concept forward,” he signs off.
