Mona Sishodia, early 50s

“It’s for our goddess Durga. In Indian culture, we have millions of gods, but when I was little and I’d get scared, my mom would tell me, ‘If I can’t be there, the goddess Durga will protect you.’ That was comforting. I’ve never been religious, but I was born and raised in India, so this is part of my culture. I believe there’s mystery in the universe. I lost my mom to cancer when I was 11. It was devastating. But the things she told me when I was a kid to make me feel safe and secure, they stayed with me.”
