|The British empire in India was administered locally by Indians
from a wide variety of castes and communities. Aware of religious
sensitivities, the British made some attempt to provide a Hindu diet
for the army and made arrangements to acknowledge Hindu festivals.
This image shows a Hindu priest garlanding the flags of the 35th Bengal
Light Infantry at a 'Presentation of Colours' ceremony.
