Madurai: Giving a public speech needs a lot of homework.

If the gathering happens to be a learned section of the society, it requires meticulous planning as that of Gandhigram Rural Institute Vice Chancellor T. Karunakaran.

He was the chief guest at a contact programme for the talented school students at Yadava College.

Prior to his turn to speak, he collected information about the gathering and circulated a questionnaire seeking reasons that stand as a barrier for the development of Tamil Nadu.

Immediately he received thought-provoking replies, which stood as a testimony to the knowledge level of the students.

Accordingly, he planned his speech, stuffed with plenty of information, which made it very interesting.

It was well received, sparking instant reactions from students.
