Many set aside a room at home, praying daily before photographs of their gods, and a handful of families took turns opening their homes for ceremonies, said Prema Manohar, an Indian who moved to Connecticut 21 years ago. But it was tough to maintain religious ties and to pass on to their children customs of the ancient religion.
