Air India's mascot, Maharajah AKA "The Rogue" is one of the most beloved corporate personalities. Developed in 1946 by Bobby Kooka, Maharajah is known for his padded belly, large mustache, and mischievous spirit. He travels the world, always ready to fully immerse himself in the culture of the place he is visiting. Here, we see Maharajah respectfully holding an umbrella for a monk in Bangkok, Thailand. The city is beautifully awash in the blues and purples of a rainy day while Maharajah and his new friend shine brightly in their local garb.
Air India was founded in 1932 by Bharat Ratna, the first Indian to receive a commercial pilot's license. It began as an airmail route, and was nationalized into a commercial airline in 1953.
