Admirer of Paul Raj Paintings

My photo
Paul was born in Kodaikanal on 22 September 1914 and died on 2 October 1979. G D Arulraj was born in 1925 and died in June 1972 while visiting India. Arul worked at Laguna Beach in the 60's and 1970's. G D Thyagaraj might have been born in 1922 and I am told that he probably died sometime before 1981. He moved to northern India as a young man. I lived in India as a child and spent a lot of time in Calcutta. My mother purchased several paintings directly from Paul Raj while living in Madras and this got me interested in his works. I then discovered he had two brothers Arul Raj and Thyaga Raj who were both fantastic artists. I could not find much information on the internet so decided to set up my own blog. Subsequently a Facebook tribute site has also been created to the memory of the three brothers. Contact me at:

Snow In the UK

We have had a week of snow in the UK now, we normally do not get much as we are at a low altitude.  However we have now had some snow every other day for a week now and it measures between six to eight inches in depth.

I have to keep clearing the drive so it does not turn to ice.  My solar panel is covered in snow so no free hot water at this time of the year.  My daughter's car is covered in snow.

We hope the bad weather will fade away otherwise it might stop some guests coming to my eldest daughter's wedding on 27th December.  Another photo follows of of my back garden.

It is necessary to keep feeding the birds otherwise they will all starve as food is so hard for them to find with the deep snow.  Hope you like the photos.


  1. Merry Christmas and enjoy the wedding celebrations !

  2. There's no snow fall in Orissa hence I love the feel & the view. Wish you a very very Happy New Year!
