We had the good fortune of connecting with Rathin Rao and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Rathin, what inspires you?
My family will always be there for me, but anything and everything can inspire you if you look from a different perspective. You have to be open for inspiration which does not mean you look for it. You’re minding your business and it will hit you out of nowhere. I’m inspired by the way people show kindness or talk about stuff they are passionate about.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I write and I direct. Then I write some more and direct that too. Challenges will always be there, you just have to know you’ll overcome it and then do it.

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
My close friends are like minded and chill, so spending time with them is more important than the location itself. Could be anywhere and we’d be just fine.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I can always count on my parents and my elder brother and my three lovely dogs who are the inspiration behind the name HSR5.
