Ulaganayagan at Harvard University

The annual India Conference was held at Harvard University on February 6. Kamal Haasan was also invited as one of the key speakers at the conference. Perhaps he is the first South Indian actor to speak at the prestigious Harvard University.

Other Indians who were also participating at the conference includes Shashi Tharoor, Nirupama Rao, Preetha Reddy and Karan Johar. Kamal Haasan said that, “I must humbly submit that I am a high school dropout. 

Before, with very little success on my side, I used to brag about being a drop out and yet managing to move seamlessly in scholarly circles without being caught out”.

“I have taken the opportunity to put on record here and in India we can’t take freedom of speech for granted and complacently think that democracy automatically means freedom of speech,” he said and pointed out that he is not criticising the democracy of India and, in fact, is proud of it and wants the country to set an example for the whole world.

“Not only India, but the world is in transition. The world is going to face new challenges, find new opportunities. We want India not to be complacent, but set world standards,” he added.
