  • We are all conditioned in life to conform. Your experience tells that our universe presents myriad untapped opportunities. Kenneth Tan
  • These societal definitions of success are along limited dimensions of title, money and power that need to be shifted toward joy, purpose and fulfillment. Laurie Zorn


In this episode of Intersections, Prof. Hitendra Wadhwa has a conversation with Srinivas Rao on the topic “The Art of Being Unmistakable”.

Whether you are a business owner, researcher or an artist, all you want is for your work to be remembered enduring the test of time. However, in a world where every song has already been sung and every prize has already been won, how do you ensure what you create would stand apart from the others? Is the fact that your creative work comes from experiences unique to you enough to effectively brand your work? And if so, when you walk this path that no one has ever walked before, who do you look up to if you are lost?

“If you walk out that door and abandon all the expectations society has laid out for you, the truest expression of who you are emerges. You play with abandon, optimism, and curiosity-like you did as a child. You begin a quest for which only you are made, the passage that only you are destined to make.”
Srinivas Rao
