Priya Jayaraman's parents warned her not to talk politics outside their home. They told her, "Mind your own business, don't look at other people while they are talking."
Jayaraman, a dentist in San Francisco, says that being a woman in India back then, they just wanted to keep her safe.
She moved from India to the US in 2004, but those rules have stuck with her.
It's one reason she won't be participating in the Women's March, a sizable demonstration against President-elect Donald Trump that will follow his inauguration. That doesn't mean she's pro-Trump, though.
