Celebrating Diversity

Posted on

Not strictly on topic, but I want to give a plug to a new book by a friend of mine, and fellow accountant, Atul Shah.

His book is called Celebrating Diversity. As the summary says:

Britain has a huge strength in its diversity. However, rarely is this noted positively. And forget about celebration - the impression we often get through the media is that it is a problem to be solved. There is a real concern with outlook and attitude. Difference should be seen as an opportunity. It is a source of great strength. It leads to creativity. It helps reap the benefits of globalisation.

The book draws upon the pluralism of Indian wisdom which teaches us that all living beings are worthy of respect - not just humans. This unique perspective helps us to deal with difference and celebrate it - we definitely do not feel threatened by it.

I share that view.
