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:

B.O.A.C. and Air India

When I first flew to India I went with B.O.A.C. (British Overseas Air Corporation) which eventually became British Airways (BA).  We sometimes would fly Air India or even Japanese Airlines (JAL) and Qantas.

Today I found on old drinks coaster from Air India it was part of a series covering many different destinations.  I can only find one and this is from Nairobi.
I also used to own a selection of gifts provided by BOAC including a junior size flight bag, larger versions were also available as well.
