This picture shows my first impression of Ravidas Park and it's uses for young people in Banaras. If you look closely, you can see the backs of couples sitting in the bushes, hidden from public view. Couples like these were scattered all over the park which is what spurned my interest in public space and young romance. These young people are usually of a higher class and around the ages of 15 to 23. This is a public space being used for private purposes that cannot be fulfilled elsewhere as young people don't have very much power.
