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 twilight safari

No sooner than when we arrived at our hotel in Bandipur called 'The Serai' we had to dash off to the National park office to join a twilight safari in an old bus like vehicle.  We saw a number of animals but no actual tigers.
Tiger country outside of the hotel looking towards the National Park.
There were quite a number of peacocks and peahens in the scrub land.

We saw a very big Indian Bison or 'Gaur' and several wild boar.

We saw an elephant in the distance hiding in the scrub and some monkeys.

There were large numbers of spotted deer and the closet we got to seeing a tiger was a pug (paw) print in the mud by a pool of water.
