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:

Street Photographer - New Delhi

Just thought I would post these two photos from 1967 when I was visiting New Delhi.  We spotted a man taking photos using an old fashioned box camera.  I got my photo taken by him and then had my photo taken of me getting my photo taken using my old Kodak Instamatic 25 camera in black and white as well.

It might have been taken in an area called Puran Quala, I am not really sure now.

I can still remember him making me pose to show off my new watch which was a Hindustan Machine Tools made watch.  Hope you like this one.
