Be­sides be­ing a pro­lific ac­tor, R Mad­ha­van is also known for his mo­ti­va­tional speeches on var­i­ous oc­ca­sions. The ac­tor, who was re­cently in Wash­ing­ton, USA, to de­liver a speech, left the au­di­ence spell­bound at The Wash­ing­ton Chap­ter in Wash­ing­ton DC.

The ac­tor who is rid­ing high on the suc­cess of his last Tamil hit, Vikram Vedha, vis­ited Wash­ingtin DC re­cently to ad­dress a con­fer­ence for girl ed­u­ca­tion and women em­pow­er­ment, or­gan­ised by Pratham USA, a non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion that sup­ports the vi­sion of en­rolling every child in a school and to track their progress. Mad­ha­van, who had been spe­cially in­vited for the oc­ca­sion, spoke on the con­fer­ence’s theme – girl ed­u­ca­tion and em­pow­er­ing ru­ral In­dia.

A source says, “With his elo­quent speech and eclec­tic thoughts, Mad­ha­van left an in­deli­ble mark on the crowd. His earnest vi­sion for em­pow­er­ing ru­ral In­dia and em­pha­sis on the im­por­tance of girl ed­u­ca­tion im­mensely res­onated with the peo­ple.”

Talk­ing about his ex­pe­ri­ence at Wash­ing­ton DC, USA, Mad­ha­van says, “Pratham is do­ing an ex­tra­or­di­nary job in mak­ing a huge dif­fer­ence in the lives of peo­ple, es­pe­cially chil­dren in In­dia. It was a priv­i­lege and hon­our for me to be a small part of that ef­fort in Wash­ing­ton DC.”
