Motherhood redefined my life: Revathi

In the second video released by Mandram, the recently organised Tamil forum for social activists, thinkers and achievers from different spheres of life, actor Revathi shares her journey of motherhood and the changes it has brought about in her way of thinking.

Actor Revathi was the first speaker at the event. “It is the good deeds and good people around us who still keep our hopes intact for a better world,” she began, drawing reference to all the negativity around us. “As a mother I feel there has been a drastic change, change for the good. It has given me the inquisitiveness to delve deep and question every happening. I feel the urge to leave behind the best for the young generation,” added the actor. She insisted that the responsibility of transferring the knowledge that we gain in our lives and the goodness we see around us to the young generation lies with us.

Hear Revathi speak at Mandram on parenting, positivity and natural living.
