Attempting to find communication where communication does not happen, I explored the disconnect in the relationship between mothers and daughters. This is an issue that is found commonly within communities of diaspora, where dissonance caused by growing up in completely different societies and times have lead to a lack of relatability and understanding between the two individuals. Using my mother and I as a case study I explored the erosion of this essential relationship within the Indian diaspora in the West. Ultimately this exploration resulted in a piece that went beyond culture and gender. Our honest and open conversation got to the core of the relationship of a parent and a child. 
 
Personally, our conversation was profound to our relationship. We talked about everything and nothing, we called each other out, we argued, we consoled, we hugged, we cried, and we high-fived. Not only did we come to understand our choices in life, but we realised each other as individuals beyond the roles of our relationship. My mother and I were able to walk away from this project with a greater appreciation for each other. (And I got to hear some really amazing tales from my mother’s life that I had never known. She is pretty incredible!)
