Fashion designer Satya Paul passes away at 79

Ace fashion designer Satya Paul passed away in Coimbatore:

Satya Paul, a famous name in the fashion industry and founder of the eponymous fashion clothing brand, passed away in Coimbatore on January 6. He suffered a stroke in December and was recovering in a hospital before he was moved to Isha Yoga Center. His son said: He had a stroke on December 2 and as he was slowly recovering in the hospital. His only wish was to get all the things he was being monitored and poked with (in the hospital) removed so that he could fly away. We finally got clearance from doctors to take him back to Isha Yoga Center, his home since 2015,” 

He also added: “Most people are not aware that more than as a designer or an entrepreneur, he has been steadfastly a seeker. In the 70s, his inner journey started as he attended talks given by philosopher J. Krishnamurti. Later, he sought guidance 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,”. 

Taking to Twitter, spiritual guru and founder of the Isha Foundation Sadhguru expressed condolence. He tweeted, “#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.”
