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:

Bandipur dawn safari

Up very early to drive to the Bandipur National Park meeting point to join the dawn safari.  We probably saw larger numbers of animals on the dawn safari compared with the dusk safari.
 A Muntjac deer.
An elephant off to work in the forest.
Four day old baby elephant by the National Park meeting point.
There were large herds of deer at the side of the road eating the better grass.
Bull elephant peeping out of the bush as we went past.
No Tigers today but plenty of elephants.  Back to the hotel for breakfast and then off to Ooty later, not a long drive but we will climb up into the hills.
