 During India’s 1965 war with Pakistan, one Indian battalion was trapped in the midst of an area full of killer land mines and began to pray to Jwala Devi. The troops noticed a goat walking through the mine field and reaching the other side safe. The grateful soldiers believed their prayers were answered. They took the goat with them, named him Mastana and he was given senior rank of Havildar. When the original Mastana died, he was replaced with another. The tradition continues.
