Satya Paul, best known as the designer who reinvented the saree for contemporary women, died at the Isha Yoga Centre here on Wednesday. He was 78.
His son Puneet Nanda shared on Facebook that Mr. Satya Paul, born on February 2, 1942, 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.
