    It’s actually graffiti not a poster

    Thanks for shedding some light, Akshay. I was thinking “paintings” when I wrote “posters,” but I never would have guessed it’s graffiti. I should have known India would have its own unique graffiti culture. Lovely stuff.

    A quick search seems to indicate a good amount of the graffiti there is political and even state sanctioned. Flickr has lots of examples.
