In Loving Memory of Smt. Saroj Goenka: A Legacy of Philanthropy and Compassion

With deep sorrow, we announce the passing of Smt. Saroj Goenka, wife of the late Sri. Bhagwan Das Goenka and daughter-in-law of the late Sri. Ramnath Goenka, founder of the Express group. Smt. Saroj Goenka departed from us on Friday, 24 May 2024, at 11:30 a.m. in Chennai.

A revered philanthropist, Smt. Saroj Goenka was deeply committed to numerous social causes. As a staunch follower of Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati, she donated a 10-acre property on behalf of BD Goenka Dayananda Saraswati Charitable Trust and Bhagwandas Goenka Educational Institution, to establish Swami Dayananda Krupa Home in 1998, when Pujya Swamiji outlined his vision for a safe home where adult men with developmental delays could live with dignity and happiness. On 6th April 2024, the upgraded facility was inaugurated by Thiru R.N. Ravi, the Governor of Tamil Nadu, marking the Home’s 25th anniversary, a milestone that highlights Smt. Saroj Goenka’s lasting legacy within our institution.

Her spirit is intricately woven into the fabric of our institution, a testament to her profound impact. Her wisdom and generosity will continue to guide us forward.

Our heartfelt prayers are with her family and loved ones. May Ishvara grant them strength and solace during this difficult time.

We extend our prayers for her atma shanthi.
