An engineer by education, Leher Sethi had a cushy job at a multinational that she left in order to pursue something more interesting. From outdoor training camps & middle management technical trainings to wedding décor with designer houses, she did it all until she chanced upon the Wellness industry. She has built a niche for herself in this demanding profession and consults multiple spas across Delhi – NCR.
Derived from her passion of reading, she is always on the lookout for new books as she feels that reading makes one grow as a person. A habit she inculcated from her father, she is always looking for new things to learn, and what better way to learn that to read! Being from an Army background, she has had the privilege to travel across the country. Now settled in Delhi, she felt the need to mingle with like-minded people, which is when she went on the lookout for a Book Club. When she could not find one that discussed all genres of books, she co-founded Delhi Book Lovers. She has recently started a community called ‘Literature Corner’ with the main objective to give its members the freedom to expression. Besides just discussing books, this club also holds author-interactive sessions & workshops for aspiring writers. She was instrumental in organizing the Delhi Literature Festival and is an advisor to the festival.
Other interests include enjoying cuisines from various parts of the world prompting her to also be associated with several food review websites & journals. Leher was featured in Femina Magazine, being called “an inspiration”. She has spoken at various events and conferences. She is also seen regularly moderating sessions with various authors. She is associated with various NGOs and is a secretary to the ICHR (Indian Council for Human Relations) and the Secretary and Co-ordinator for ICUNR (Indian Council for UN Relations).
