Everywhere in Benares, you can find painted adverts about guesthouses, yoga classes, sweet lassi, etc. Indeed very needed considering the maze those old small streets are. And highly photogenic.

That young man was actually painting an advert about Hindi classes… Not for Indians to get to read but probably for tourists who want  to dig into the local culture and reach nirvana some day…
