Born in Bihar, raised in Delhi and schooled in Dehradun, Aleesha writes on a broad range of subjects for Catch news and was formerly an editor with The Indian Express. When she's not writing or editing, you can find her glued to the television, trying to clear a backlog of movies and shows, or reading her Kindle. Raised on a diet of rock ’n’ roll by the family, she’s hit by wanderlust from time to time. After an eight-year stint at Welham Girls’ School, Delhi University turned out to be an exercise in youthful rebellion. And then, some laziness was thrown out of the window when she got the Best All-Round Student award at J-school. Now she takes each day as it comes, but isn't an eternal optimist.
