e4mChillout: Nandini Dias enjoys her weekends with family, friends and food

From immersing herself in a good book to catching up on movies and bonding with her family, Nandini Dias, the CEO of Lodestar, has her weekend priorities set straight. Dias is a sports enthusiast and loves playing games in her free time. She is also a good cook and can whip up lip-smacking aloo paratha, puran poli and many other delicacies.
The allure of unseen destinations urges Dias to travel and she confesses that she takes a day off while on work trips to explore the place.

"To get dates from the three men in my life is such a mammoth task that I have stopped dreaming about vacations," exclaims Dias.

Read on to find out more about Nandini Dias and her weekend indulgences…


On a typical weekend you will find me...

With the family. Saturday is about organising the week ahead and Sunday is about having fun-- playing, watching movies, eating and meeting friends.




My idea of relaxing is...

Walking, playing, reading, watching movies, listening to music and meeting friends.


One vice I cannot do without... 

Since I was a sportsperson, I never got into any vice. I used to play badminton. When I was playing, the rules of the game were tougher than today. You had to earn a point. You could not get a point if the opponent made a mistake. To last in such a game, one really needed stamina. So we would do a lot of things to just build speed and stamina. Vices would have nullified all the efforts.

A staycation/adventure I love...

Exploring new cities. Whenever I travel for work, I usually try to take out one day to see the place.



I confess, I am a...

A fan of romantic stories, books, movies …



I spend me-time on...

Walking during the day and reading at night


The last show I binge watched...

Wild Wild Country. Bhagwan Shri Rajneesh and my father were friends. So I watched it almost non-stop.


I can make a mean ...to save my life... 

Puran poli, aloo paratha, chapati, puri , thalipeeth…..


A skill/hobby I want to learn this year...

Every year, I think I will re-learn driving.


My next vacation/adventure will be ...

These days I just pray it happens. To get the three men in my life to give me dates is such a mammoth task that I have stopped dreaming about vacations!
