Satya Paul, a renowned fashion designer and the founder of an acclaimed fashion label, died at the age of 78 on Wednesday. He died at the Isha Yoga Centre in Coimbatore.
Satya Paul's son Puneet Nanda and the founder of Isha Yoga Centre, Sadhguru, announced the news of the fashion designer's death on Thursday. In a Facebook post, Puneet Nanda wrote that Satya Paul suffered a stroke on December 2, following which he was admitted to a hospital, where "he was slowly recovering." However, he was later shifted to the Isha Yoga Centre, "his home since 2015," as per his wish.
Puneet Nanda's post read: "He (Satya Paul) 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 - removed so he could fly away. We finally got clearance from doctors to take him back to Isha Yoga Center, his home since 2015. As per his wish, he gently passed on with blessings of the Master."
“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,” he added.
A tweet on the official handle of Sadhguru read: "#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 and blessings -Sg."
