Speaking on the occasion, Mrs. Sushma Berlia, President Apeejay
Stya Group & Svran Group said, “My father was way ahead of his time and
was an ardent hard worker. He fought in the Quit India movement and was jailed.
That showed his loyalty to the nation. For him work was worship. He was a man
who spoke less and worked more.”
Notably, Late Dr. Stya Paul was conferred the Udyog Ratan Award by the Government of Punjab and PHDCCI, in recognition of his contribution to
Industry and Education, and Punjab’s economical development in particular.

family thought that it would be a fitting tribute to commemorate the educationist’s 92nd birth anniversary by enacting a play on the life
and times of the saint which coincided with the 150th birth
anniversary of Swami Vivekananda. The two hour monologue play by artist Shekhar Sen left the high-profile audience spell-bound.
