Meet Guest Author Dr. Richa Saxena

Dr Richa Saxena

Dr. Richa Saxena was born and raised in New Delhi, India. After successfully completing her graduation in medicine from the prestigious Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi, India, she pursued her masters in Gynecology from Delhi University, and did a clinical research project at the renowned alma mater All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India. To further enhance her knowledge in the field of obstetrics and gynecology, she went to the UK to pursue MRCOG (Member of Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists).


Her interests are multifarious and she is an artistic and creative person. In contrary to her shy personality from outside, from within she is an articulate, vivacious, multifaceted and light-hearted person. Her great passion for writing has brought 8 medical books and 3 biographies in her kitty. Her ardor for fiction writing is the reason for the emergence of her first fiction novel titled “Joy of Living”. This book is an inspirational love story which shows that “when all appears to be lost, hope survives”. The book illustrates that the best way to live life is to celebrate it with whatever one has and not grieve over what one does not have or what life has taken away. It further glorifies the saying by Dr Christiaan Barnard (cardiac surgeon who performed the first successful human-to-human heart transplantation): “Joy of living is the celebration of being alive.”

Furthermore, she holds the esteemed position of “Chief Editor” in one of the pioneer publishers of medical books in India. She has written several articles pertaining to the health care for general public as well as health care professionals. One of her significant contribution to social welfare is “Nine Things for Nine Months of Pregnancy”, a publication in collaboration with Glaxo Smith Kline Pharmaceuticals Limited, published by M/s Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers, issued in public interest and social awareness. This book has been translated and printed in seven different Indian regional languages besides Hindi (national language of India) and English. It was distributed free of cost to pregnant women all over the country and has had a print run of more than one lakh (100,000) copies.

  1. Richa, I love your philosophy, “When all appears to be lost, hope survives.” And your schematic, “The Benefits of Reading Books,” is eye-catching; perhaps you’d consider marketing it? I would be your first customer! Shared this on FB, LI, Twitter 🙂
