(Re)searching Romantic Relationships and Public Space in Banaras: Banaras Hindu University

This is a photograph of one of the gates into BHU. BHU provided an interesting context for my research because it is one of the few places in Banaras where romantic relationships between young people are somewhat publicly accepted. As a place centered around modernity (with an added emphasis on traditional education) and youth, this place acts as an intersection between traditional and modern values that lacks familial influence.
