My tribute to a noble soul, Indu Jain | India News
Very few contemporary saints and thinkers have explained the meaning of life and its vicissitudes as clearly as Indu Jain. In one of our many meetings he explained to me that living in the present means not regretting the past and not worrying about the future.
Because his life was an incredible adventure, one that must be explored and experienced. She believed in this until her last breath. That is why he believed that in death there is the eternal salvation of the soul to achieve peace and that is why death should be celebrated.
A multifaceted personality I would describe her as an embodiment of the spirit of Indian heritage, well versed in ancient scriptures but completely absorbed in implementing the same with modernity.
With all the riches of the world at his feet, he chose to wear a simple cotton or silk kurta without jewels.
She kept her complexion luminous and radiant until the very end. Anyone who came into contact with her would be immediately captured by the grace of her benovellant and spiritual personality.
She was humble and yet had a scholarly sense of communicating her beliefs and goals that were dear to her. Her commitment to spirituality transformed her belief that the devastation caused by natural calamities and the unfair treatment of destitute women and apathy towards orphaned children, if not resolved, peace in this world would be far away. When she assumed the position of president of Time group in 1999 he dedicated himself to achieving these goals.
She was a recipient of the Padma bhushan as a tribute to her passionate philanthropic nature and to being a distinguished patron of art and culture. He was one of those rare personalities from India who had the distinction of addressing the UN General Assembly for Peace.
Knowing Induji for almost four decades is a personal loss, but Induji lives and continues to live as his ideals will always inspire us to dedicate ourselves to accomplishing the great tasks that lie ahead.
