Popular fashion designer Satya Paul passed away in Coimbatore on Thursday. He was 79 years old.
The Satya Paul label was known for its indigenous prints. It was founded by Satya Paul on April 1, 1985. The brand was praised for its ingenuity in design sensibility and clear color palette. The brand has grown exponentially and now it exists all over India. Satya Paul met Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, the founder of the Isha Foundation in 2007 and became attracted to yoga. He had been living at the Isha Yoga Center since 2015.
His son Puneet Nanda shared on Facebook that Mr. Satya Paul had suffered a stroke last month and was recovering at hospital. “His only wish was to get all the things he was being monitored and poked with removed so he could fly away. We finally got clearance from doctors to take him back to Isha Yoga Centre, his home since 2015. As per his wish, he gently passed on with blessings of the Master,” Mr. Nanda wrote.
“SatyaPaul, a shining example of what it means to live with immeasurable passion and unrelenting involvement. The distinct vision you brought to the Indian fashion industry is a beautiful tribute to this. A privilege to have had you amongst us. Condolences & Blessings. -Sg,” Jaggi Vasudev, said in a tweet.
