Smt Rajeshwari Paul birth anniversary: Apeejay Noida pledges to uphold vision and values of Apeejay’s ‘first lady’

The school paid a heartfelt tribute to late Smt Paul through cultural performances and an art exhibition



Apeejay School, Noida, celebrated the 98th birth anniversary of late Smt Rajeshwari Paul, wife of late Dr Stya Paul, founder chairman of Apeejay Group. Smt Paul was fondly remembered by the school faculty and students on this occasion.

The ‘first lady’ of Apeejay Stya & Svran Group was paid floral tributes. Prayers were also offered in this commemorative ceremony celebrated in the school auditorium. An epitome of love and affection, late Smt Paul was a motherly figure who brought faith and hope to the lives of others in the Apeejay family.

Addressing the audience, school principal AK Sharma read out a heartfelt message by Smt Paul’s daughter and the current co-promoter and president of Apeejay Stya & Svran Group Mrs Sushma Paul Berlia. In her message, Mrs Berlia highlighted her mother’s crucial role in the rise of Apeejay group over the decades. Smt Paul, who was a postgraduate in English, was also adept at swimming, music, and kathak. Throughout her life, she celebrated various forms of art and advocated for them when they were still far from getting their due recognition. It was late Smt Paul, who incorporated arts into the school curriculum.  Rajeshwari Paul Kala Sangam, an inter-school art and music competition has been instituted in her memory.

Students presented enthralling performances—from instrumental music to dance. A nukkad natak (street play) was organised by the Primary Department of the school. Students also put up an art exhibition. The programme ended with refreshments.

Apeejay Noida resolves to uphold the vision of learning and values of late Smt Paul, an epitome of love and compassion.

“Rajeshwari Paul ji was an epitome of compassion and affection. Her love for performing arts brings out the finer emotions of our students making them sensitive human beings.”
