Ranjana Bharij loves to call herself a true Indian. Her father hailed from Uttar Pradesh, mother from Rajasthan and her husband is from Punjab. She has travelled widely across the country as well as internationally first due to her father’s transferable job and later because of the high mobility in her own job. An alumnus of Lucknow University, she taught Political Science in a Delhi University College for over a year before joining a public sector bank; she retired from there as General Manager in 2009 after devoting thirty eight years of her life to the service at the bank. A champion of women’s cause, gender-equality is very dear to her heart. In her own words, neither her parents nor her husband ever let her feel that a woman is inferior to men in any manner. Naturally, any reference to her gender as a weaker sex in the organisational context agitated her no end. Currently, she lives in New Delhi with her husband Shiv while her two sons Rahul and Sidharth have settled in Canada and USA respectively. Restless Days, Sleepless Nights is her debut book.
