LONDON (TIP): The wife of leading NRI industrialist Lord Swraj Paul, Lady Aruna Paul, passed away peacefully at her home in London on Tuesday, May 3 night. She was 86. “She was full of life and always trying to uplift people around her,” said a close family member, confirming the news of her death.
Lady Paul is survived by her husband and three children – two sons Akash and Ambar and daughter Anjli.
Swraj and Aruna Paul, who were married for over 65 years, were a familiar presence together at diaspora events in London.
