I get consistently blown-away by the people I get to interview on this podcast. Its not just the way they are living, or the work and impact they are having, but also the way they are going about it. As a friend of mind puts it, it is the egoless-ness, humility and matter-of-fact way they are going about it that I also find inspiring.
This week’s guest, Shalini Samuel, is no exception to this. Whether it be talking about the people she meets through the interpreting work she does, the impact and way she affects people through the music she plays, or creating forums and platforms for large corporates or smaller social enterprises to have a positive social and environmental impact: Shalini talks about each with the same humility and purpose.
The impression I was left with after talking with her is that there is a congruence in all she does. This was apparent through her answer to the second last question I ask all my guests: about the disruption they would one day like to be part of. For Shalini her answer was that she is already part of it, through the work she is doing through the Global Women’s Project.
She reflected that if it ever occurred to her to be part of another disruption, the it would time for her to be part of it; then and there. The thing she is working on now is the thing she believes most strongly in.
It was a heart-warming delight to spend an hour sitting in the lounge of the Palace Cinema Como. I hope you enjoying joining us as well.
