When you are born in Banaras, you are part of a history and intrinsic art and culture of more than 3000 years old. And it must be great to grow up in a such a city with freedom to play in the numerous alleys with stories on every doorstep, the hundreds of temples and on the ghats, the embankments to the river Ganges. Yet it will be very difficult to escape from this tradition and culture when you grow older.
