Somit's charity is doing amazing work to provide education to slum children in Varanasi. Please go and visit. Proceeds from his guest house are directly going to this charity. A truly dedicated individual. India needs more socially minded entrepreneurs like Somit.

Somit Guesthouse provides more activities than I could fit into this review! During my stay, went on a sunrise boatride along the Ganga, visited and volunteered at two of the schools that Somit and his wife setup for local street kids.
