In the summer of 2013, a biography of Faraz Khan and his business partner Khusro Ansari was published with the enigmatic title ‘Midlife and Naked’. It is an unconventional biography of two entrepreneurs who share the story of their journey and the highs and lows of life that made them emerge as a stronger force, with a zest and vigour for life as it is. Written by Shaista Ayesha, this book speaks of the revelations about entrepreneurship, Pakistan and life in general. It is a very candid account of what the two subjects have experienced to date. In no way do they imply that they are great enough that a book should be written about them.
However they feel that it is necessary to talk about a journey as it is happening instead of writing all about it once a person has reached her/his destination. They do not talk about profit margins, business models and business terms. The whole book is a conversation in which these two humbly bring to light the things that can help promote and support entrepreneurship in Pakistan, and the beauty of simple joys that we often tend to take for granted.
