  • Google Doodle Google Celebrates Anandi Gopalrao Joshi's 153rd Birthday With A Doodle

Joshi was born with the name Yamuna, in Kalyan of Maharashtra's Thane district. While she may be the first female doctor in India, her doodle appears in several Google homepages such as Google UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

One of the Venus' crater was named after Anandi Gopal Joshi. Anandi lived in Calcutta for a while, before going to United States. It was after her marriage that her husband Gopalrao renamed her as Anandi. At sixteen, battling ill-health but determined to succeed, Joshi set sail for the US.

Anandi's husband married her on the condition that he should be permitted to educate the girl and that she should be willing to read and write.

Wylie tweeted that he had been getting a lot of requests from Indian journalists to disclose SCL's past projects in India. Dehaye, who is the co-founder of Personal.Data.IO, said Muresan worked simultaneously on projects in Kenya and India.

At a time when education to women was not given much importance, Anandi Joshi secured a degree in medicine at the age of 21 from Women's Medical College of Pennsylvania, now known as Drexel University College of Medicine.

She was admitted for her medical course at the age of 19 and graduated with an MD degree on 11 March, 1886.

Google today honoured Anandibai Gopalrao Joshi with a Doodle for inspiring women to be educated and for being the first Indian woman to obtain a degree in western medicine. The topic of her thesis was "Obstetrics among the Aryan Hindus". By then she was 22. Joshi's achievements, however short-lived, were significant at a time when girl education had no prominence in India. As a mark of respect, her ashes were placed in a cemetery in Poughkeepsie in NY. Queen Victoria had also sent her congratulatory message on her graduation.

Amidst the achievement, Anandibai's health significantly declined due to cold and unfamiliar weather and diet.

In her honour, the Institute for Research & Documentation in Social Sciences, Lucknow instituted the annual "Anandibai Joshi Award" and the Maharashtra government offers a fellowship named after her.

She returned to India in 1886 and took up the role of the physician in charge of the female ward at Kolhapur's Albert Edward Hospital. Her death was mourned throughout India.
