Google dedicates doodle to India's first female doctor Anandi Gopal Joshi

Google doodle celebrates India's first female doctor Anandi Gopal Joshi's 153rd birthday

Joshi was born with the name Yamuna, in Kalyan of Maharashtra's Thane district.

Ananpi Goshi was India's first female physician - she is remembered today by Google. India's Doordarshan created a Hindi serial on her life called "Anandi Gopal", while Marathi writer Shrikrishna J. Joshi wrote a story on her life which was later adapted into a theatre production by RG Joglekar. She made a decision to study medicine in the USA. She returned to India later that year. He taught her to read and write. Her original name was Yamuna and it was her husband who had renamed her as Anandi.

At sixteen, battling ill-health but determined to succeed, Joshi set sail for America. She was only 19 at the time. Gopalrao worked as a postal clerk in Kalyan. Appreciation, as well as funding, poured in, and in 1884, at the age of 19, she journeyed to NY from Calcutta by ship, and was enabled to graduate from Women's Medical College of Pennsylvania (WMC) in 1886 (now known as Drexel University College of Medicine), along with three other women - Kei Okami and Tabat Islambooly - who were all their respective country's first women doctors.

- At the age of 14, Anandi lost her 10-day-old toddler, which promoted her to study medicine. Though Joshi could not complete her dream of opening a medical college for women. It was the first time that any woman from India stepped in the United States.

But within a year she was dead from tuberculosis at just 22.

Her ashes now lie in the family cemetery in Poughkeepsie, New York.

By 1886, Anandibai obtained her MD degree though her health had started failing by the time. Queen Victoria had also sent her congratulatory message on her graduation.

Anandi Gopal Joshi died at an early age due to tuberculosis.

She was only 19 when she became the physician in charge of the female ward at Albert Edward Hospital in Kolhapur.

Many have since walked in her footsteps to achieve their dreams and transform the Indian society, one of whom was Rukhmabai Raut - the first practicing Indian female physician in colonial India - who, too, was honoured by Google with a doodle on her birth anniversary five months ago.
