Great things do come in small packages. The same can be said for Living Globalised, written by Sarang Shaikh and Jeffrey Eker Jr. The book was launched recently at The Second Floor in Karachi. The two authors, born in two different countries with varying life goals met in an elevator in Sri Lanka. The book begins from their first interaction as strangers to a point when SarangShaikh and Jeffrey Eker Jr became professional acquaintances and partners in exploring the world and analysing how it works. Shaikh is a graduate from Mehran University of Engineering & Technology, Jamshoro with a Masters in Business Administration degree in innovation and entrepreneurship and Jeffrey Ekeris a graduate in BS Electrical & Computer Engineering from Rowan University, New Jersey. They thought of combining their corporate, professional and creative acumen to come up with a professional narrative by sharing with the readers their experience of travelling to major parts of the world as Shaikh has been to 12 countries while Jeffrey has been to 22. When Shaikh and Jeffrey met, they both were part of the organisation, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, a United States-based professional association focusing on electrical, electronic, communications and computer engineering. Written in simple words but with a profound meaning, ‘Living Globalized’ shares the authors’ life lessons they learned as professionals as for how to use the concept of a globalized world for their advantage. The book aptly describes through stories and the authors’ opinion the impact the globalized economy has over major regions of the world especially America, Europe, South Asia and the Asia Pacific. The book also opines how digital media and its associated tools now facilitate start-ups, individuals, groups, and corporations in connecting with their clients, stakeholders, customers and the public across the world. The book does not burden the reader with the authors’ thoughts but compels them to read the book where each experience and every life lesson is presented in story format readers can relate with. The opening part of the book, “The Elevator Scene” as Shaikh mentioned during the book launch, is the elevator pitch. It is a challenging task where an aspiring entrepreneur needs to make a short and concise speech to a potential investor or mentor in a short span of time. Shaikh and Jeffrey’s elevator scene did set the theme for the book and later the book dwells on Shaikh and Jeffrey’s life before they first met. While answering to a question during the book launch, Shaikh agreed that this book would bridge, to some extent, the cultural divide between the West and the East. The stories presented in the book are what no textbook can offer. While the book is for all age groups, Shaikh believes high school and university students must read the book to develop a keen insight into how the globalised world works to help them develop a proficient judgment of their respective societies. Shaikh believes the book will also do wonders fresh graduates and start-up entrepreneurs. The tagline of the book “The Best Adventures Are Powered by International Perspective” fittingly describes the importance of the book’s content. In today’s age when the world and its processes; people and their ideas; communication and networking has become fast and easy, individuals and companies have become more productive, can share ideas rapidly, can collaborate with people across the world and can build meaningful revenue-generating partnerships with the aid of digital media. The book describes similar thoughts and practices that not only hold ground today but also will continue to do so as the world has become globalized and digitized for good. The book has received appreciation from different parts of the world. Khaled Mokhtar, Innovation and Emerging Technologies Manager, Etisalat, United Arab Emirates, said, “The book is a magical trip combining the feeling of giving back in volunteering and seeing the world in a different perspective.” Amy K Campbell, Assistant Coulter Programme Director at Drexel University, US, opines, “Absolutely outstanding narrative. Once I started reading, I simply could not put this book down. The way Jeff and Sarang openly discuss their experiences and provide “lessons learned but, also action steps” is genius. The authors have created a remarkable way to tell their story but also to help others follow in their footsteps.” While the books’ Kindle Edition is available on Amazon, the book was published in Pakistan by Roshni Publication, a publication house in Hyderabad, Sindh. The book is divided into three parts. “Part One: Before the Elevator” looks at the intricate yet interesting details of how the authors’ lives brought them to Sri Lanka along with their other professional activities.
