Kaushik Mudda's talk on rejection was delivered for a TEDxBMSCE event. He begins by considering the fear of rejection that many people hold, and the power that this has in preventing them from trying new things and reaching their potential.
Due to this, it can take a lot out of a person to accept rejection, and to keep moving forward despite it. In Mudda's case, he received countless rejections throughout his academic career, as he was always proposing big ideas that weren't always well-received and respected. Although rejection tends to involve a lot of emotion and can be difficult to accept as a result, it can also be the driving force behind someone's improvement, as their desire to do better and keep trying only increases. With his talk, Mudda inspires his audience to have faith in their ideas, and to never give up on their goals.
