“Home is where you can grow and be who you want to be"
A multi-tasking master on the transformative power of spaces
Find me a mom who hasn’t mastered multitasking and I will spend the next month working out like Katrina Kaif. I know there isn’t a chance of that happening because without even realising, moms manage to keep more pins in the air than most jugglers. Shraddha Sehgal is no different. She’s working in the family textile business, following her passion for music, all the while keeping up with the usual household and parenting responsibilities.
An entrepreneur, lyricist, and resident of Lodha’s The World Towers, she says that multitasking comes naturally to her. She’s someone who loves working. “I have worked full-time since I was in the 12th grade. The importance of work experience was instilled in me by my father. He insisted that I work and I loved it.”
In Better Life with Lodha, we go behind the scenes into the private worlds of accomplished women whose every day might look different from ours and each others’, but who are united by their need for a space to call their own.
In this second episode, Sehgal talks about the transformative power of our personal spaces; how having the right kind of space can let you explore various facets of your personality.

Sehgal was 34 when she took up music more seriously. Following your passion can be an intimidating prospect at any age. More so when you’re a woman; an already working mom, ‘married and settled’ as society would say. But that never deterred her. She signed up for a course to study music.
“All my classmates were half my age. They’d fondly call me didi. I was lucky they didn’t call me aunty! But I did the course and enjoyed it thoroughly.” What started off as a hobby took a professional turn upon the encouragement of the faculty who recognised her talent.
The safety and security facilities of her Lodha home have enabled her to pursue what she wants while knowing in the back of her mind that she doesn’t need to worry about her family. Her kids can safely run around in the building and the playground, while day-to-day needs are taken care of by the hospitality services team. Hitting sixes at the cricket grounds, doing the Macarena at a dance class or having a cannonball competition at the pool with friends. “Then I am in tune with what I have to do next, whether it’s textiles, music or being out with friends and family.”
The most important thing for parents, for Sehgal, at Lodha-The World towers – safety, both mental and physical. “My home has given my family the space, safety, and security to grow and be who we want to be.”
Lodha has brought together craftsmanship, design, and world-class service to help residents like Sehgal and her family live their lives to the fullest. With the amenities that not just occupy your kids but nurture them as people, as well as creative spaces where you, like Sehgal, may just find your muse.
