The small public spaces found across the neighbourhood share commonalities and differences in their characteristics. Depending upon the location, context and footfall, the usage of the space by various user groups differs accordingly. For instance, spaces around chai/paan vendors in Ahmedabad do share similarities to an extent with the Ashwath katte even though the former is a socio-economic space while the latter is a socio-religious space. Both the spaces act as an anchor for other social and economic activities and are functional from early morning till midnight. The chai/paan vendors are immensely male-dominated while the Ashwath kattes are not as gendered as the former spaces.
