Something that is incredibly common here is Ganesh idols. If a driver is Hindu, it is almost certain that there will be a tacky plastic Ganesh glued to the dashboard. If offices, you often see pictures of Ganesh hanging in cubicles. Ganesh clears obsacles; which is another way of saying that he is on the dashboard/monitor/cubiclele-wall for good luck.
When in Rome, do as the Romans do.
I acquired my own little wooden Ganesh and stuck it on top of my monitor.
