Meet The Team
Founder and Author
Oviya Anjali Giri is a Final Year Medical Student at the P.S.G. Institute of Medical Sciences and Research, India. She is a writer and aspires to train in General Surgery in the upcoming years.
She is new to the biographical writing space. She recently had her inspirational piece titled ‘To Be A Successful Surgeon, You Must Have The Heart of A Mother And The Hands of A Lady’ accepted for publication in the International Journal of Academic Medicine.
Having a passion for storytelling and awareness of misinformation related to undergoing training in surgical specialties, she chose to undertake this passion project.
In launching this venture, she hopes to paint stories of various surgeons to give the outsider a realistic picture of the surgeon’s life.
Besides her engagement with writing, she is a student-researcher. Her areas of interest include women in surgery research, gender equity research, and minimally invasive surgical outcomes research. She is a strong advocate for women in Surgery and is highly passionate about women empowerment in healthcare.
Karthika Vijay is an architect and graphic designer based out of Chennai, India. She draws inspiration from her travel to various places. Experiencing new cultures, people and places gives her different perspectives.
Her illustrative works on Loops and Loupes of Journeys provide unique and elegant character to the various biographical articles.

Editor in Chief
Dr. Anirudh is a general and laparoscopic surgeon who is almost as passionate about writing as he is about surgery itself. He has written and curated multiple articles for the crowdsourced website “First Class Medicine” that he helped create with a bunch of like-minded friends. In addition, he has a blog of his own titled “The Cutting Edge”, where he pens down his thoughts and lessons drawn from his day to day experiences as a surgeon. He loves to teach and finds a teachable moment at every opportunity possible. He hopes to continue writing in the future whilst working towards his vision of becoming a Minimal-Access Colorectal Surgeon.
His valued reviews on these pieces prior to publishing on L&LJ add exceptional quality.
Head of Website Development
His favourite thing to do outside of his passion for Computer Science is mastering multiplayer video games like Apex Legends and League of Legends due to their competitive nature and how they are a great way to keep in close touch with his friends.
His unique ability to merge technology with a sleek aesthetic is the basis behind L&LJ’s great design.
