NRI of the Year 2005, Mr. Madhu Yaskhi, New York attorney

Madhu S Yaskhi, a name to be reckoned in the international community as a legal professional who had helped many Indian brethren solve their problems amicably in an alien land. In a profession where people make a mark after long periods of service, Madhu had made a name for himself by delivering legal service to expatriate communities, particularly Indians having problems in America. He had founded the International Legal and Trade Consultants and through this organization he had been able to impart valuable legal help to solve personal problems of people of Indian origin and also businesses started by them. According to him, many Indians and in specific the Telugu speaking are in the forefront of computer revolution both in India and in the United States of America. Madhu had been behind the success of many among them.

Born on 15 December 1960 to Y. Kistaiah and Y. Sulochana in a middle class agricultural family in Hayatnagar, Madhu has six sisters and four brothers. He is the second among them. His father’s younger brother Y. Pochaiah and wife Y. Anasuya adopted Madhu.

Regarding his education, Madhu studied in the local Zilla Parishad School. Later he completed his intermediate education from the City College with BPC (Biology, Physics and Chemistry) group; and then, his Bachelors Degree with Arts from the Nizam’s College. He finished his LLB from Delhi University between 1982-85; and later LLM from Osmania University. Though an average student, he managed to get a double promotion from Third standard to Fifth standard.

Almost all sports attracted Madhu. He used to play Ball badminton and was the captain of the team in his intermediate days. Reading also was one of his hobbies. He developed keen interest in reading Telugu literature and History. At a very young age, he read almost all the books of the great Telugu scholar Vishwanatha Satyanarayana.

Madhu had the qualities of a leader right from early childhood. Even in school, from First standard onwards, except for one year, he was the class leader. When he was in the eighth standard, he participated in the school elections and was elected General Secretary. This was an overwhelming achievement for Madhu as the two other candidates who contested with him were tenth class students. Sidelining them, the students had voted in Madhu’s favour. This was a clear indication of Madhu’s leadership qualities. While in the tenth class, he was elected President of the school.

Even in college, there was no set back to his leadership qualities. Change of atmosphere and place did not cause any hindrance or we can say that he did not allow hindrances to block his way to success. Even in college, he was the Vice President of the Student’s Union of PG College and Nizam College Students Union. While doing his LLM, he was the University Law College President. And now, he is contesting for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections with the Congress ticket, with an innate desire to serve the poor, downtrodden and needy people, especially of Andhra Pradesh.

He married Dr Shuchee, a gynecologist in the year 1991. The couple have two children. Madhu’s father died in a road accident in the year 1990. As there was no immediate medical attention, his condition deteriorated and he died. Madhu was very much moved by the sudden demise of his father in such a tragic way and this incident left a deep impact on his life. It also inspired him to become a cause for giving life to many accident victims and thus encouraged wife Dr Shuchee to change her subject from gynecology to endocrinology. Dr Shuchee had worked successfully in many hospitals in the United States of America. And now, she returned to India, for the sake of her children’s education and also with an intention to settle down in one place
