Rupinder Gill is a Canadian writer. She is a former television publicist for Alliance Atlantis and BBC Canada.

Her first book, On the Outside Looking Indian is a humorous memoir about her childhood as the child of Indian immigrants in a small Canadian town.[1][2] The book was shortlisted for the 2012 Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour.[3]

Her book garnered attention before its release because the popular website Reddit featured the book's spoof back cover recommendation from Oprah Winfrey.[4] Gill has written for Canadian comedy show This Hour Has 22 Minutes, the National Post and websites such as McSweeney's.
