Reel Life Pursuits
Ebrahim’s earliest tryst with entrepreneurship was a studio in his hometown here in Ernakulam, providing assistant directorial services for movies and TV shows.
Not long ago, Ajith took a dive into the deep end of the film world- working on the story, screenplay and the direction for a seven-minute short film called The Elixir. The film has a strong social message on the conservation of water, bringing awareness to the dire situation that water scarcity can place us in.
Ajith Ebrahim first came to the UAE over two decades ago on what may have been an uneventful trip to visit his brother.
The charm of Dubai lured him in and before he knew it, Ajith was shuffling all over the Emirate with a bag full of passports, working as a PRO alongside his brother for mega clients like Lulu, Joy Alukkas, DTDC and the like. He would also be tasked with using the manual typewriter for documentation and his Arabic knowledge helped him advance his career further. Not long after, he was joined in Dubai by his wife and son. Eventually, he ventured out into starting his own firm.
UAE- A home he’s come to love
Ajith Ebrahim is all praises for the UAE, its adept leadership and the countless opportunities it holds for those looking to make a mark in business. According to him, the UAE is home to a skilled workforce, a thriving community, world-class infrastructure all of which fosters a modern, transparent corporate environment that widens the horizons making business easy. He highlights how everyone is given an opportunity here, as long as they adhere to the law, regardless of where they come from.
A true believer and proponent of the power of networking, Ajith’s ability of acquainting himself with and befriending people from other parts of the UAE has been particularly beneficial to his personal growth. He is a member of the IPA, General Secretary of the United PRO Association and the founder member and President of the Global Malayali Cultural Association. His wife, Surya Ajith, has been following in her husband’s entrepreneurial footsteps with her venture Azalia Bouteak and the couple has two children.
Surrendering to Serendipity
One common thread in all of the notable experiences of Ajith Ebrahim’s life is that his greatest opportunities most often come to him, even when he’s not looking. For someone whose life’s philosophy is to live in the moment instead of building sandcastles in the skies of the future, the serendipity of Ajith’s life has always continued to pleasantly surprise.
