|Late Shri Prakash Chand Ji Surana, Jaipur, an icon of the jewelry industry of Jaipur.|
Shri Prakash Chand Ji Surana, renowned jeweler of Jaipur, died of an heart attack on 5 February 2015.
If you had to name one person of Jaipur who made a mark in the jewelry business across India, it would most probably be Prakash Chand ji Surana. Many people do business, but few make a place for themselves like he did. Not only did he take the ancestral jewelry business to great new heights, but he was also a gem of a person by heart. Always ready to help, Prakash Chand ji Sahab was known for his compassion, his patronage of musicians & his taste taste in music.
He will forever live on in the hearts of people whom he has so fondly been in touch with.
February 7, 2015, The Uthavana of Shri Prakash Chand Ji Surana was held today. As expected, there were a lot of speakers, letters & tributes to the gem of a person. However I found 2 quotes spoken by satiya ji maharajsab specially remarkable,
A person is seldom remembered after his death. It is his personality & his goodness that we so fondly remember.
To do good for others is Punya, to do bad is Paap. That is the summary of the legendary Hindu texts which have over 18 volumes.
P.S. : Our store, Suranas Jewelove will reopen on Sunday, 8 February, 2015 due to Prakash Chand Ji Surana's demise.
