Book Launch – ‘Living Globalized’ at T2F

Living Globalized is a tale of two young professionals, who met each other volunteering for respective countries at a professional organization called IEEE. The book starts from an elevator scene, continuing to narrate how both of them individually grew on a personal and professional level before meeting in that elevator. The book in the later part pivot to “after the elevator” in the second half, where it describes the amazing opportunities both have received and lessons they have learnt from global work, travels, and volunteerism. The point? We live in a globalized economy, and for the first time have digital tools to connect with anyone around the globe at any time. The book focuses on the fact that with a little hard work, anyone can leverage the opportunities made possible by our modern tools to actually travel, gain perspective, and make an impact at the global level. Their idea – and roadmap for readers’ personal transformations – is outlined in the book, Living Globalized, which features their experience along with twenty-two others from ten different nations in a short story format.

The author Sarang will be sharing some of his personal anecdotes and experiences from the book, moreover, he will be onsite to sign book copies for purchase on the event.
