Loving being at the Davos, now to get ready for the Crystal Award Ceremony. #DavosDiaries”

Right now, his heartwarming and powerful speech is going viral. Some of the quotes are here:
“I am grateful to these brave women and children (of Meer Foundation) who I work with for all that they have done for me, to the World Economic Forum, and all of you present here today for recognizing the heroism by conferring this award, and this reward upon me.”
“I want to thank my sister, my wife and my little daughter for bringing me up well and teaching me the value of requesting, sometimes imploring, and sometimes even begging a yes from a woman, instead of forcing it upon her.”
 
“We, the powerful, need to get out of the way, to pick the barriers apart, the ones that give us names and races and colours and hierarchies,”
“That is what I have learned from my beautifully scarred women.” -he said.


Shah Rukh also took it to twitter to share his fan boy moment as English singer Sir Elton John and Australian actress Cate Blanchett were also honored at the Summit.
