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:

Set off to do some sight seeing in Mysore and went to the Palace first which was very very busy with school trips.  The room stewards had whistle sand used them a lot to keep people moving and to stop them doing anything wrong.

Brother and sister at a viewpoint above the city of Mysore.  We were staying at a brand new hotel which had only been open two weeks and only one floor of the hotel had been commissioned.  We gave them plenty of feedback without being too critical as we knew it was brand new when we booked.
