She used to say " jiska NATH vo ANATH kaha" and discouraged the use of the word 'anath' for orphans. Shri Des Raj Chaudhry till he passed away had worked ceaselessly for the cause of women and poor children. 'Son like father'; it is the relentless, untiring efforts and sacrifices of his son, Shri Viresh Pratap Chaudhry who carried forward in the full measure the dream and aspirations of his father and mother. Thus, Des Raj Campus in 11 acres of land, in C-block, East of Kailash, New Delhi.
An Auditorium in the Campus was a fond dream of late Shri Des Raj Chaudhry who had completed the construction of the external structure of the building way back in 1982 with donations received for the purpose from various philanthropic individuals and Trusts but due to shortage of funds, the Auditorium could not be started during his life time.
It was in the year 2009, that Shri V.P. Chaudhry, through Shri Arun Jaitley, met Smt. Jyotsana Suri, wife of Late Shri Lalit Suri, who agreed to arrange donations to the Trust for renovation and completion of the Auditorium through Bharat Hotel Ltd. She also took keen personal interest in the renovation. The income proceeds from this Auditorium would be used by the Trust to provide succour to the orphan/destitute girls and for women empowerment.
