born on November 26, 1942 and
passed away on January 06, 2022.
Our precious mother/grandmother, Manju Sengupta, passed away on Thursday, January 6th at 11.34 am, in Max Hospital, IP extension, New Delhi.
She is predeceased by her father the late Shri Jagadish Chandra Choudhury, mother Lavanya Prabha and her husband the late Shri Mihir Kanti Sen.
She is survived by her daughters , Dr Rinku Sengupta(UK) and Ms Tinku Sengupta(India) and grandchildren Anushka, Tania (India) and Aatish (UK). She has a large circle of family ( including 2 brothers and 1 sister) and friends in Kolkata.
She devoted her life to her children and family, after her marriage. She graduated with honours in Botany and Zoology from Scottish Church College Calcutta. A dedicated maths and science teacher, a keen needleworker , a talented cook , and with an uncanny aptitude for art and crafts: she had several unique qualities that will be fondly remembered by her dear ones, for life. She will remain the best friend we ever had.
She was always there for her children and grandchildren to encourage , support, assist , advice and nurture. She had a wicked sense of humour, a twinkle in her eyes and a knack to befriend all.
She volunteered in her spare time for the Missionaries of Charity and Hope Foundation Charity, Kolkata.
Manju never wanted to be the center of attention, so her services will be private for immediate family members only, on 16th January at her daughters home ,at IP extension, New Delhi, at 11.30 am.
Friends and family wishing to honor Manju are invited to make a donation in her name to their local Ramkrishna Mission or the Missionaries of Charity , Kolkata.
"When you speak of her, speak not with tears, for thoughts of her should not be sad. Let memories of the times you shared give you comfort, for her life was rich because of you."
May her soul rest in peace.

I wish to live on earth without losing anyone dear to me. Lost Manju pishi (my father's cousin sis). She has always been my specially loved aunt and we shared hours of fun and laughter. She was a person with a strong and confident mindset and was capable of taking decisive action. Manju pishi preferred living on her own and never wanted to bother others. Wishing both my elder sisters Mini di and Babli di(her daughters) comfort, courage, and lots of love. Remembering the life of a person who touched so many lives. You'll be with me forever. I pray you are at peace. Pronam Manju pishi.

My pranaam to her ...rest in peace ,Choto Mashi..
