Uma Mysorekar, Clip 3: Ganesh Temple's gradual acceptance in the community
Collection: Queens Memory Project Collection at Queens College Libraries' Department of Special Collections and Archives: Uma Mysorekar
Description: Dr. Uma Mysorekar describes how initially there was skepticism among members of the Hindu community about building a temple. She talks about how a small group spearheaded the project, out of the desire to have a place of worship. After the temple was built there were obstacles faced due to local ignorance about the Hindu religion.
