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:

24 November 2014 - Spending the day in Ooty

We were spending the full day and a second night in Ooty.  Had some sight seeing planned, we went to the highest peak at 2660 metres and had to wait for the mist to clear to take some photos.  Went to a tea factory and saw them processing the local Nilgiris tea.  Went to the Botanical Gardens, a British Church and also did some shopping.

View from the peak.
 Tea terraces.

Cutting the grass at the Botanical Gardens in Ooty, the greenhouses and the women sweeping up the cut grass.
