HT Brunch Cover Story: Before the biopic
Meet the captain of the Indian women’s national football team, Loitongbam Ashalata Devi, a player whose life is a gripping story just waiting to be shared
Fresh off the HT Brunch cover shoot, 29-year-old Loitongbam Ashalata Devi is in high spirits. “It was so very good,” she repeats thrice, effusively. “It was my first experience and I really liked it.” Ashalata is instantly easy to talk to and has an almost innocent, unpretentious way of speaking and natural charm that draws you to her.
