  • Her husband renamed her Anandi after marraige

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

From being a child bride to becoming a doctor, Anandi's short, tragic life is one of courage and determination. He also renamed India's first lady doctor who was born with the name Yamuna as "Anandi". He taught her to read and write. Her husband, Gopalrao Joshi, played an important part in her early education as he encouraged her to continue her education. At sixteen, battling ill-health but determined to succeed, Joshi set sail for the US. The pallu (veil) of her sari is aflutter in the breeze as if in cheerful celebrations of her medical achievement, all at the age of 19. But, in her community address at the Serampore College Hall, she spoke about the persecution she and her husband had endured.

Gopalrao encouraged Anandibai to study medicine and in 1880, she moved to the United States to pursue higher studies at the Women's Medical College of Pennsylvania, where her husband found an appropriate post for himself as well. Dr. Anandi Gopal Joshi came back to India in 1886 with a doctor's degree at a very inspiring young age i.e. just 19 years. She made the long journey to NY by ship and was received by Mrs. Carpenter there.

America's cold weather and the difference in cuisine added to her bad health, and she contracted tuberculosis, but graduated with an MD nevertheless on March 11, 1886, upon submitting a thesis titled "Obstetrics among the Aryan Hindus". But being a progressive thinker who supported education for women, Mr Joshi regarded learning English to be a more pragmatic choice. After her graduation, Queen Victoria had reportedly sent her a congratulatory message.

"In 1886, a young doctor stepped off a ship from America, eager to take up the role of physician in charge of the female ward at Kolhapur's Albert Edward Hospital".

Anandi Gopal Joshi applied to the Women's Medical College of Pennsylvania and was granted admission. Her death was mourned throughout India.

The Indian female doctor would have celebrated her 153rd birthday today.

Joshi died of tuberculosis in Poona in 1887 at the age of 22.
