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:

Lalbagh Botanical Gradens and heading for Mysore 21 November 2014

Photo follows of a great big tree in the Botanical Gardens in Bangalore.
The next morning we set off to drive from Bangalore to Mysore a distance of 148kms about 3 hours and 30 minutes and on the way we passed a convoy of carts loaded with sugar cane but it was parked up at the side of the road no cattle in sight to pull the carts.
Also on the journey we noticed a number of unusual rocky outcrops.
