e4mChillout: Parag Milk Foods' Akshali Shah spends a lot of time at her farm

Akshali Shah, Senior VP, Strategy- Sales and Marketing, Parag Milk Foods, entirely spend her weekends connecting with family and friends. She calls herself a foodie and admits that she loves being at her farm, close to nature while also keeping herself updated with new-edge technologies.


On a typical weekend you will find me...
I am a family-oriented person. When I am not working on weekends, I like to be like any ordinary, lively girl who catches priceless moments with friends and family.

My idea of relaxing is...
Spending time at Bhagyalakshmi Dairy farm with cows and calves, understanding life at the farm, spending time on understanding organic vegetable farming. Being with nature is tremendously peaceful, calming and centering.


One vice I cannot do without...
As I am a foodie, I love experimenting with food whenever I get free time.

I confess, I am a...

Workaholic! Early in life, I decided on joining our family business – Parag Milk Foods and started preparing for the role ahead. I have realised that observing people and assessing the manner in which they tackle several tasks has always provided me with a method of self-education, which is much-needed in any achiever. Nearly eight years into the entrepreneurship realm, I admit that real-life education is more sustainable than theoretical aspects.

I spend me-time on...

On weekends you will find me spending time learning new-edge technologies, exploring digital platforms, and understanding global trends, which we can slowly and gradually incorporate into our business. Also, reading books is something I am fond of.

The last show I binge watched...
Madame Secretary.

I love a Staycation/adventure...
I had grown up in a village – Manchar that is surrounded by the Sahyadri hills. Roaming there, meeting all childhood friends is my idea of short breaks.

My next vacation/adventure will be ...
Travelling is what I enjoy the most as it exposes me to different cultures, food habits and perspectives, which I can draw inspiration from, even at work. The next place that I will visit is somewhere in Europe or USA. I haven’t decided exactly which one yet.

I can make a mean...
Cheesy vegetable pasta and guacamole dips and chips.

A skill I want to learn this year...
Workout is one big stress buster. I love to be fit. This year would like to learn Strength training and cross fit.
