From Lavina Melwani’s article for Hinduism Today:

Sharma recalls her childhood days in Mumbai, where pilgrimage to various temples was always an important part of her growing up days: “My mother was a spiritually curious soul and still is. There was always spiritual material floating around the house,” she recalls. “My dad always said Hinduism is a philosophy of life. And my mom always said it was about learning to let go and trust the universe. I always had positive associations of Hinduism as a practice because it was never a compulsion. Even at a temple, you could walk around at your pace and go explore different parts of it. My parents encouraged questions, lots of them, and still do.”
