I had never met a blind person in my life until I was 31 years, 5 months and 3 days old. I remember my age to the exact day so clearly because the blind person that I first met happened to be my first child, my 5-day old daughter Yogita.
Hi. I am Mohan Ranga Rao, Father, Husband, Entrepreneur and a no-nonsense straightforward guy.
I did my degree in Electrical Engineering and my M.B.A from the University of Mysore in an era when MBAs were considered as Mavericks. Instead of being content in the comfort and collective security of our family business, I chose to go solo in the businesses that I ran, struggled, built and sold several multimillion dollar businesses, parented a blind child, climbed several peaks including mount Kailash in the Himalayas, wrote a travel memoir on it, won a medal in10 K marathon, never missed a day of Tennis and my 30 minute routine of Pranayama and am now writing my personal memoir.
I am of the firm belief that people cannot make you feel small or take away your power and self-belief without your consent. I tackled it by drawing on my inner power and growing large within. Our stories and experiences may be different but there is a larger, deeper meaning in them that we can recognise if we stop looking at them with myopic inner eyes and start viewing them as cosmic orchestrations designed to edify our souls. I am writing this blog so that you could know that you are not alone in your pondering about the deeper meaning of life.
I have been an avid reader all my life and a lover of Vedanta and non-duality. I have 32 years of experience as an entrepreneur-C.E.O in various industries.
I sincerely hope that you will enjoy my blogs.
