Students of Jamia Millia University here made a 20-minute short film "Bhor" (Dawn) on her, and it won raving reviews. A leading publisher is now planning to translate her book into English.
Anuradha has a single mission now: to create awareness about cancer, especially breast cancer.
"It was a very painful experience," she says of her years of her ordeal with cancer. "During my treatment in the first phase, my white blood cell count fell drastically. I was kept in isolation. I could not even meet my son.
"Then I had a relatively easy life for six years. But when I discovered lumps in my second breast, I felt disappointed because it had happened to me despite the utmost care I had taken.
"But my family's wholehearted support put me back on track," Anuradha said. She still shudders while recalling the pain she put up with because of chemotherapy.
Today, backed by some NGOs, she organises special camps and kitty parties where she talks to women about the dangers from cancer.
The disease and its strenuous treatment effected many changes in the once petite form. Her hair turned curly and then, with the treatment, straightened out again. She has since gained weight.
Anuradha is thankful to her son Arindam and husband Dileep Chandramandal, a senior producer with CNBC news channel, for standing by her.
"My son," she says with a tinge of pride, "never irritated me. In fact both my son and husband gave me strength and inspiration I badly needed."
