The Author

Amrinder Bajaj is a practicing gynecologist, an MD (Obstetrics & Gynecology) from the premier All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and a Gold Medalist. At present she is the head of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in a corporate hospital in Delhi. Writing is a passion that has led to the publication of several books that include two wellness books, a book of poems, a joke book, and a memoir based on her association with the noted Indian author and columnist Khushwant Singh. She regularly writes columns, articles, travelogues, and short stories for magazines and newspapers and has contributed chapters to medical textbooks.

Says Amrinder Bajaj – Medicine is the wife I am married to and literature is my mistress. The former offers stability like the roots of a tree while the latter is the crown that flirts with the sun, wind and rain. Poetry, my first love, twines like a vine around this tree. This book is a fictionalized account of my life. It lays bare taboo subjects like female sexuality, exposing what right-thinking people would carry to their graves with sealed lips. It raises questions for which females all over the world seek answers.

Afternoon Girl my KHUSHWANT memoir (HarperCollins)

Hilarious! Scandalous! Salacious!

A brief encounter between a young gynecologist (and aspiring writer) and one of the most celebrated and enigmatic authors of our time sows the seed of an unusual friendship that is fuelled as much by their afternoon meetings over a few decades as the letters and ribald jokes they exchange. Afternoon Girl celebrates a friendship that swings between love and loathing, adoration and indifference, support and abandonment, but stands the test of time.
