Mrs Chitra Devi Sethia was born in a princely family of Ajairajpura in Jaipur State, India on 15th August 1951. 

She was educated in Jaipur and graduated in Sanskrit as a First Class Gold Medallist.

On 18th of February 1969, Mr Nirmal Sethia married Chitra Devi and moved to London. The marriage was blessed with three children, Richa, Rishi and Puru.

In the words of Mr N Sethia, “Chitra was not only my wife, my soul mate and the mother of my children but also my teacher. She taught me that the first step to divinity is Gratitude.  To all who knew her she was the ocean of kindness. She never talked about her philanthropic activities or the good she had been doing all of her life.”

Mrs Chitra Sethia passed away peacefully on 30th November 2010, in London. This tribute is an insignificant and humble expression by her family in her everlasting memory.
