e4mChillout: JWT India CSO's weekends are all about her Goa boutique hotel, outdoors and cultural fests
Bindu Sethi detests malls, most weekends you will find her at her boutique hotel in old Goa or in Delhi she can often be spotted at Lodhi Garden, IHC, Thyagaraj Sport Complex and even Humayun’s Tomb
Some people talk, some people dream and there are some like Bindu Sethi, Chief Strategy Officer at J Walter Thompson India, who quietly but surely live their dreams. Yes, be ready to feel envious as you read on. The lady spends atleast two weekends every month in Goa at her boutique hotel, Champakali, far away from the maddening world of advertising and media.
Sethi and her son run a boutique hotel in old Goa and dedicate two weekends to it. “Most of my weekends are spent either at Champakali or planning for it. There is so much to be done there. There are numerous types of plants, there are artefacts and several kinds of birds. We have recently introduced a spa in our hotel,” says the lady who seems to have mastered the art of work-life balance.
Even on weekends when Sethi is in Delhi she has a lot to do and it mostly involves the outdoors. A walk in the famous Lodhi Garden, an hour or so in the gym at the India Habitat Center and a running session at Thyagaraj Sport Complex are some of the fitness mantras that Sethi tries over the weekends spent in the Capital.
“I am always open to exploring new, lesser known places in Delhi and I simply dislike going to malls,” says this culture-enthusiast and nature lover. In fact, Sethi's idea of me time is being outdoors in the company of trees.
Sethi often goes for heritage walks on Sundays, visiting old monuments and spending time in the lap of nature and refreshing her love for history.
On a Saturday evening you may spot her at a concert, theatre or even at Humayun’s Tomb attending a cultural festival. “I look forward to the winter season in Delhi as that also brings with it a lot of festivals.”
For music, Sethi enjoys Hindustani Classical and for movies she loves to binge on Netflix. For books, however, she prefers a wide spectrum, most of which are recommendations coming from her journalist daughter.
