January: Well known for his exceptional contribution towards the fashion industry, fashion designer Satya Paul passed away on Wednesday, dated January 6. He breathed his last in Tamil Nadu, Coimbatore as he was 79.
Puneet Nanda, the son of the designer shared that Paul suffered a stroke in December 2019 and was recovering in a hospital before he was moved to Isha Yoga Centre that was his home since 2015. Various celebrities took to their respective social media handles to express the sorrow over losing a gem. Satya Paul was best known for re-inventing the sari for contemporary masses.
Nanda shared a Facebook post mentioned about his heartfelt concerns over the demise of his father. He quoted as saying, “Most people are not aware, more than as a designer or entrepreneur, he has been steadfastly a seeker. In the ’70s, his inner journey started with going to listen to talks with J Krishnamurty, Later, he took sannyas from Osho. After Osho left in 1990, though he wasn’t seeking another Master, he discovered Sadhguru in 2007. He immediately started enjoying the path of yoga and eventually moved here in 2015. He has been a doorway for hundreds of people towards spirituality and all the Masters he was so blessed to have been with. He couldn’t have had a sweeter life or passage… at the feet of the Master. We are sad only a bit, mostly rejoicing him, his life and now his passing with such a blessing.”
