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:

The Calcutta Swimming Club - One Mile Certificate - 1968

While tidying up my papers I came across a certificate I was awarded in September 1968 for swimming one mile breast stroke in the amazingly slow time of 53 minutes and 46 seconds.  At the time my father was President of the Calcutta Swimming Club so he was able to sign the certificate along with the Club Captain.
I assume they still give out the certificates?
