The Early Years

With an International Career spanning over 17 years, she represented India from 1983-1995, and captained the Indian Team in World Championships, Asian Games, Commonwealth games, South Asian Games, and many others. Sejal has won over 140 medals, including the Shivaji Chhatrapati Award as the Best International Sportsperson in her state along with the legendary Sachin Tendulkar in 1991.
Upon her retirement from active professional sports, she studied Ikebana for 7 years at the Ohara School of Japan, Bonsai from Indo Japanese Association, and Interior design and took keen interest in shaping Bonsai plants.
The Beginning of Milestone
In 2003, her husband’s career brought her to Dubai, where she decided to form her company Milestone. She soon began to cultivate the reputation of being the best landscape designer in Dubai, designing for the likes of Sheikh Mohammed and creating centerpieces and arrangements for over 80 hotels and restaurants.
Between 2003 and 2008, the business began to expand, and so did the scope of her projects. She began to focus on landscaping design and interior design. Milestones offerings expanded to designing and constructing indoor gardens, outdoor gardens, and expansive interior design services.
With expansion came new opportunities, and Sejal soon realized that more and more of her clientele were requesting swimming pool design and construction, as well as exterior designs. It was around this time she saw the benefits in developing an internal carpentry factory. Milestone began to design and manufacture external gazebos, pergolas, fences, seating arrangements, beds, studies, wardrobes, panels, ceiling and flooring enhancements, and literally everything in between.
A landscape designer at heart, Sejal’s true passion lies in undertaking individual home garden and interior projects, where she can work closely with her clients.
