You know that buzzing sensation you get in your brain when you hear a really good idea? It’s that moment when the proverbial light bulb goes off in your head and you think, “what a fabulous idea”, why has no one thought of this before! This is exactly what happened to me when I first read about ‘Globalise-Asian’, the new Podcast especially put together by and for the Asian community, settled in the UK and the World over. Globalise-Asian is the brain child of Gagan and Vatsala, two talented and vibrant individuals who I recently had the pleasure of meeting.
I had a fabulous time in their company recording my first ever podcast and they are clearly two professionals who are very passionate about their product and their platform. l have always loved the human stories that surround us on a daily basis; the profound lessons and side-splitting humour that exist in our normal lives is the most interesting story of them all. A podcast where I can hear my fellow global Asians’ life stories is just such a brilliant idea! Please find below an introduction to Globalise-Asian in their own words:
An Introduction to Globalise-Asian
“The concept of this podcast came about quite recently when I, Gagan, a Banking professional and Vatsala, a Medical Affairs specialist happened to meet over coffee. We both felt the need to bring professionals and others with varied skills and interests from the Asian diaspora together. It was also apparent that the few platforms that allow networking opportunities were clearly limited in reach to make any meaningful impact.
As listeners of various podcasts ourselves, we thought Globalise Asian will offer the ideal medium to attract and showcase the incredible expanse of skill set and commendable initiatives and success stories of the Asian community; i.e. Yourselves.
You can participate in several ways. As a speaker, you can use this space to either talk about your profession/business/initiative or just share your inspirational stories. On the other hand, as consumers of the series, your contribution as valuable feedback and support will help us grow what is now a humble community effort to the next level. The advantage of this creative, interactive digital medium truly presents endless opportunities.
The weekly podcast, post-production will be approximately 30 mins per episode. We have now interviewed several professionals, and people representing various backgrounds and interests. This is an ongoing process as we develop a growing library of podcast episodes which, much like any other podcast, will be accessible from iOS/android devices via the podcasts apps and also on our website. On our website, the link for each episode will be made available starting with the first episode on 23 April. We would love to hear from individuals who wish to join us as potential guest speakers or those wishing to get involved in other ways. As an effort geared solely for the benefit of the wider community, based on your suggestions and feedback, we will be flexible to evolve the format of the show as we go along. Welcome and enjoy listening to Globalise-Asian.”
Globalise-Asian podcast goes live on 23 April with its very first guest, Isha from ‘Isha’s Verdict’ (www.ishasverdict.com).

I am a huge fan of the oversized trend and even the ‘kind of big on you’ trend really appeals to me. I love this slightly oversized pale green dress as it reminds me of a classy boiler suit and the fabric and design add an edginess that is hard to pin down. There are two other reasons I love this dress: 1) With its long sleeves, it is ideal for the transitional weather we are currently experiencing 2) I bought this dress on sale for £13.94. Lets face it, nothing gives a retail therapy high quite like buying a dress you love on sale! I have paired it with one of my favourite wedge heel sandals (which unfortunately did not cost £13.94) and a striking black and white clutch. I have rounded off the look with a black cotton swing coat that I have had for many years and works exceedingly well on a warmer spring day.
I hope you have enjoyed this lookbook and thank you so much for visiting my blog. Don’t forget to tune in to hear Globalise-Asian’s first podcast episode on the 23rd of April – featuring yours truly.
