Total Management of Cancer Since 1969

Manju Gupta was the first newscaster and newsreader with Bombay Doordarshan, presenting programmes in both Hindi and English. In 1974 she moved to US and worked at Cornell University Medical College during the day, attending a course in Television and Film Production at night. When she returned to India in 1982, she joined Doordarshan again, a move that would eventually bring her to CPAA. She joined CPAA in 1984 and as her first assignment created 5 low cost audiovisuals for CPAA. These were greatly appreciated and raised awareness about CPAA activities. She then took charge of the newly sanctioned Adams Wylie center where the Red Cross had given space to CPAA, for rehabilitation and employment of cured cancer patients.

The Rehabilitation Centre started under her tutelage with just one person and a single machine. Manju has used her initiative and creativity to develop the centre with a capacity to accommodate almost 100 persons, who can be trained in various arts and crafts like tailoring, painting, book binding, etc. Her contribution towards creating this oasis for cancer patients has been awarded with multiple awards and citations.

Over the years, Manju has contributed many articles to the prestigious “Dharmyug”, a Times of India Publication, has been a ghost editor of “Janssen News”, a Phychriatric News Magazine of Johnson & Johnson, and been a member of Council for Fair Business Practices, Consumer Affair Cell, Film Censor Board, Agroha Vikas Trust, Shri Hari Satsang Samiti, Akhil Bhartiya Agarwal Sammelan, FICCI Ladies Wing and IMC Ladies Wing, Mumbai.

Manju is particularly proud of creating the “Salonè Diyè” range of diyas, Candles and Gift Products, exclusive Hotel Linen items for the Taj Group of Hotels which are regularly supplied all over India and abroad, and an indigenously developed hand-made Breast Prosthesis made by cancer patients for mastectomy patients
