Varanasi mural


I was fortunate enough to observe this talented young artist painting the above mural in Varanasi on one of my many ghat strolls. The ghats are filled with wonderful street-art like this – I even met an English graffiti artist at work on one another day. I don’t think he was Banksy though…

Update: I’ve just found out, thanks to a photograph of the finished mural featured on the ‘Incredible Varanasi’ facebook page that the speech bubble says “Every woman is a goddess”. Wonderful! And how appropriate that it was painted by a woman.

    1. Thanks for re-blogging this on your great blog Lakshmi Loves to Shop (which I’m now following). At first this photo wasn’t getting a lot of love – but today it’s got lost of likes – I’ve a feeling your re-blog has got something to do with that!

  1. I get so much pleasure in seeing your photographs,they are amazing,particularly these Indian ones with their vibrant colours and the unusual subjects.
    Thank you so much for sharing them.

    1. Yes it is isn’t it – she’s a talented young lady. I love your gravatar picture by the way! I have just been checking out your blog and am very excited for you moving to India, and marrying there too! I shall follow your blog and look forward to hearing all about it. I have fallen in love with the wedding dress pictures you posted – makes me want to find myself an Indian husband too :-)

      1. Thank you so much! I am moving in 9 days… I just cannot wait!

        I love the photos that you post on your blog so much! Thank you so much for following my blog!

        Maybe I am extremely biased but Indians make the best husbands haha!! I hope you are well!! Take care

      2. Wow, the day after Boxing Day – that’s great! Enjoy your new life – and write about it! Your blog already sounds like a novel and your enthusiasm for India is infectious. You will have an insight into Indian life that most Western visitors don’t experience, so share it and maybe there will be a book in it some day! (Thanks for your appreciation of my photographs – I hope they help make the wait until your flight a little more bearable!)
