“This is the goddess Durga,” says Lance Corporal Prithvi, gesturing towards the shrine containing a statue of the Hindu deity. “She represents power. At this moment we pray to her because we think she gives us power to defeat evil forces.”
Above the shrine is a hanging featuring the god Hanuman, to its right a poster of the Lord Shiva, to the left another poster of the goddess Durga and, next to her, a poster of Lakshmi.
