His paintings are immortal

Abraham Lincoln once said, “It is not the years in your life but the life in your years, that is important”. Rajam Sir was one of the few, whose life had years and years had life. Sruti’s tribute referring to him as a ‘rare gem’, on the occasion of his 90th birthday, was quite apt. What a remarkable personality he was – versatile in the performing and graphic arts, player of many roles with distinction, wide ranging in his interactions, perceptive in his observations, deeply insightful, well equipped as a resource person, willing to share, generous in appreciation, and engaged in purposeful activity almost till the end.
