Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Earlier this winter, when Parth Patel visited the Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago for the first time, he wasn’t expecting to find a Hindu temple tucked amid the island’s palm trees. “I’m Hindu,” Patel, an Austin Peay State University (APSU) junior, said.

“It was cool seeing the influence there because India is so far away. The temples were very traditional; one had scriptures on it, and I could understand the scriptures because they were in the same dialect,” stated Patel.
