- A Brief about yourself and how you describe your own Personality and Persona.
“Strong will power, high determination, and hard work can fulfill any of our dreams, and this statement truly defines me”. I am Manjari Gupta, a banker by profession and a mother of two adorable kids. I am confident, optimistic, cheerful full of zeal and compassion. I strongly believe Life is beautiful and so are the people in our surroundings. Live, love, laugh and help everyone in our society, and if we do this diligently, we honestly are serving the nation. Helping someone makes me feel happyand caring for the loved ones makes me feel satisfied. I feel a woman have diversified roles to play because she is suitably gifted by almighty to handle multiple tasks at the same time.The love and smile we receive for our contributions are the most precious rewards anyone can return. I strongly feel, women if she wishes can conquer the world because she is strong, capable, and gifted with something very special.We just need to identify the special element in us and work towards honing it, thereby we not only can uplift our family but also our society and our nation.
- You’re Achievements that makes you feel high.
Presently I am working as an AVP at a reputed MNC Bank& doing extremely well professionally. On personal front I am happily married & blessed with 2 lovely kids (daughter & son) who complete me. Academically I have been a topper throughout from school to Post Grad (MBA). However, achievements according to me are not always related to our professional and academic world, instead if we make someone happy can also be considered our achievement and for me that day becomes successful!Fortunately,I have many such successful days to my credit. I personally feel, I am a very strong woman, who always wished to pursue great learnings and work towards my own improvement every day in every circumstance and no challenge ever affects me. I consider myself privileged being an outstanding student throughout my academics and receiving Gold medal from Vice Chancellor during my academics.Additionally, many accolades and rewards were received during my service stint that has always motivated me to do better. I also feel proud when many a times any young girl conveys and considers me as a role model, and I continue to share my experiences and learnings so that every woman who needs help and guidance can be supported by me. Life is an art to balance, the better you balance the happier and successful person you are!!
- Define the true beauty.
For me a true beauty is anything that inspires, motivates others with an optimistic approach and a face that is able to convey even a strong message with ease is Beauty. For me, being truthful, being honest, having golden heart, being strong and have creative mind is also beauty. Beauty is also when we acknowledge and appreciate others. To sum up, Beauty is a blend of many qualities, and when it gets added with a caring and beautiful smile, it makes a person beautiful.
- What makes a complete, healthy and happy family for you?
A family that shares their happiness, problems, loves to spend time together, cares for each other and works hard to reach each other’s goals, for me it makes a complete, healthy and happy family. In a family, parents should be the role models and should deliver the best qualities in action if they are willing to see the same in their child later. In family, every member is equally important and every person’s success is equally important. Moreover, last but not least in a healthy & happy family, Respect, care and love is always mutual.
- What is your favorite Idea of Holidaying?
Holidaying for me is a life enriching experience! I like to travel & explore places across the globe. This allows me to learn the culture of the place, learn more about the people, the tradition, the food, the surroundings, when visiting any nation, city or place. It also gives me a break to dedicate quality time with family, make memorable moments filled with love and laughter thus an enriching experience that is cherished forever…hence any place is worth holidaying!

This is an important aspect that I certainly would like to make awareness on and would like to contribute on the same.
- The Quote or saying that encourages you?
