Designer Satya Paul passed away on Jan 7, 2021. Knowing about my love for his sarees, Geetu had immediately posted the news on our school WhatsApp group. I was about to write a blog the same day, then thought I will wear a few of his sarees and then post. Today while searching for a photograph, I found this beautiful picture of flowers somewhere in Kalpa. We were in Kalpa, end of April 2015.
This picture was such a mood lifter !!! These flowers are bright and just make you feel good about life. Then during our morning walk, I captured red Bougainvillea flowers that looked just stunning.
The above picture looks like a painting ! I may just get it printed and framed.
All these flowers reminded me about the very first Satya Paul saree that I bought. It had a hand painted flower in the pallu. I wore it on Saturday (Feb 27) and took a couple of pictures.
I have worn this saree several times. Had bought this and a blue one from their factory seconds store on M G Road way back in 2005. I just realised that I don’t have a single picture of me in the blue saree that’s like an abstract painting.
Over the years I have bought several other Satya Paul sarees, but always on a sale. I love the crepes and chiffons without any bling. I just don’t like any bling and garish embroidery on the saree.

Fashion designer Satya Paul passes away – So happy to realise that he was an Osho Sannyasin and stayed at Sadhguru’s Isha Centre in Coimbatore.
Thanks Mr. Satya Paul for making the Saree a fashion in your own way. Farewell. Om Shanthi, Om Shanthi, Om Shanthi.
