New Book “Life in a Faceless World” by Indian-American Author Cyril Mukalel attempts to promote a greater understanding between cultures and facilitate friendships between diverse groups; there by removing the fear incited from ignorance. This book reminds the readers that, we are all unique and different in many ways. Instead of focusing on our differences, we should find reasons to come together. Often we tend to be preoccupied by our own problems living in our own world, in imaginary silos that we have created ourselves. If we try to know one another, and look through the eyes of the people around us, the invisible walls we have created will begin to disappear and our world will be a friendlier place.
The message of the book to learn about other cultures, promote inclusion vs exclusion, being inviting rather than rejecting has resonated very well with many prominent American politicians. Book’s supporters and initial readers include highflying US Congress woman Ilhan Omar, Minnesota House of Representatives like Kristin Robbins,Hodan Hassan, Heather Edelson, City of Savage Mayor Janet Williams and many others.
“Life in a Faceless World” is a fictional novel that depicts the life of a young immigrant woman from India. Each chapter is the representation of different events in her life that exposes the cultural mindsets of people from that region to the western world. The story set in both, US and India also allow the readers to experience the Indian cultural traits and family values that can never be separated. Social issues like religious extremism, child labor, exploitation of Tech workers and domestic abuse are also elegantly knitted into the plot. The pages of this book also hold the secret to finding true happiness in the midst of struggles in our daily lives.
