About Sheila Caprihan

I think she was a remarkable lady. Despite a masters degree in English (perhaps 1945/46) and being the wife of a very successful industrialist - who set up the pioneering Caprihan India Ltd. to manufacture decorative & industrial laminates, perhaps for the first time in India, at Bombay - she decided to devote her entire life in the service of the Dayal Bagh Community; after she was widowed at the young age of 26. With the money left behind by her husband and her education she could have gone into business or decided to do whatever she wanted. Yet her decision to lead a humble life at Dayal Bagh was a big sacrifice and she seemed happy and content doing that till the end. Of course she saw to it that both her children got the best education and were well settled in life. Whatever little I knew about her; she was equally at ease discussing philosophy, fabrication of garments in the little unit near her house at Soamy Nagar, stock market and even reciting an occasional urdu 'sher'. It was always a pleasure meeting her. May her noble soul rest in peace. Krishan Kalra
