Had you heard of Durga before reading this book? What did you know of her, if anything? What do you think her "heart" was?

I'd heard of Durga, knowing she is a goddess. I believe her "heart" was all the power she possessed.

I have heard of Durga, the goddess. I think in this book the "heart" was the imaginings of a very sick soldier who never really came to terms with returning to reality.

I never heard of Durga. Her "heart" was the soul of a warrior ready to battle.
