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
fatherís younger brother Y. Pochaiah and wife Y. Anasuya
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 Nizamís
College. He finished his LLB from Delhi University between

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
Madhuís favour. This was a clear indication of Madhuís
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
Studentís 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. Madhuís 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 childrenís education and also with an
intention to settle down in one place.
