His punctuality, sense of discipline, dedication and focus made him an ideal role model of excellence for all those who worked with him. For Dr Stya Paul, work was passion, and he hated to miss office even when he was ill. He had a sharp memory for people, was an excellent listener, apart from being a good orator and writer.

So, as we remember and honour him on this day, let us take a pledge to uphold the legacy of excellence that he leaves behind, and strive to achieve the goals to which he devoted his life.”
