A Hindu woman dressed in a colorful "shalwar kamiz," a traditional northern Indian costume, leaves a small shrine attached to a private home in Princes Town, a Trinidadian city of more than 90,000 persons--many descendants of indentured laborers who bought land from the British Crown after their labor contracts expired. Home temples allow Trinidadian Hindus to perform daily "pujas," or the act of showing reverence to a god through prayers, songs, and lighting incense and lamps.
