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:

22 November 2014 on the road from Mysore to Bandipur

We set off on the morning of 22 November 2014 for Bandipur National Park, intending to go on a jeep safari and could even see a tiger.  Road got quiet the further away. from Mysore we travelled.
Fruit stall on the road to Bandipur.
Road due to be widened at some point but they were having to cut down the old Banyan trees.
Old hand cart.
Stopped to take some photos of this great bullock cart at the side of the road.
