Jaipur remembers legendary late Maharani Gayatri Devi on her 100th birth anniversary
On her 100th birth anniversary on May 23, late Gayatri Devi (1919 - 2009), Rajmata of Jaipur, was remembered by the people of the city, who was the Princess of Cooch Behar and got married to Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II of Jaipur.

The old and present students and teachers of the Maharani Gayatri Devi Girls' Public School, founded by her in 1943, took the lead in remembering her and paying rich tribute to the legendry royal, who lived her life to the fullest.

On the occasion of her 100th birth centenary, a special pooja and maha aarti was organized in Govind Devi ji temple. The event was marked by a special prayer meeting, in which members of the Gayatri Memorial Charitable Trust, her grand children and kin were in attendance.

Also, a function was organised at the Birla Auditorium in the city in which a large number her associates and admirers participated to pay tributes to her.

She was a great advocate of girls' education. She knew the true value of education since she herself had studied at Patha Bhavana of Visva-Bharati University, Shantiniketan. She went to Lausanne, Switzerland, for further studies and later studied secretarial skills in London School of Secretaries. She was also a sports lover. She was an excellent horse rider and a good Polo player.

She was a very charming person who got acknowledged as the classical Indian beauty and was counted in 'The Ten Most Beautiful Women of the World' by Vogue Magazine.
