Lekha is a journalist working in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Over the last 12 years, she has worked with leading newspapers and magazines of India like The Times of India, Hindustan Times, DNA and Mumbai Mirror, and has come to the conclusion that journalism cannot change the world. She believes scribes love to talk, think they are superior and make for ideal armchair activists - especially when they are away from India yet are constantly tuned into what’s happening back home.
