** Huh, this troper always took it to be that Indy was a historian, a teacher, essentially a scientist of sorts, looking for facts to support beliefs. He doesn't immediately believe in the magic of something until he actually sees it work. Mola Ram on the other hand was just a religious hypocrite, twisting religious tales to suit his needs. My view was that, as Indy said, Mola Ram had betrayed his beliefs to benefit himself, while Indy, the objective outsider, may not be a believer but as such certainly wasn't betraying ANY beliefs, hence why the stones would work for him to smite Mola Ram with godly fury

****If you look closely, he's with Blumbertt and his men when they arrived to save Indy.

** It could also be an attempt to mess with those interfering and stupid white foreigners by feeding them literal NauseaFuel so they'd get the hint and leave.

* The infamous dinner scene in the palace. When I was younger, I thought it was just a typical, "Wow, foreign cultures have really weird diets". It wasn't until I was older that I thought it wasn't the regional culture that brought the menu to the palace. It's a sign that the corruption of the Thuggee cult is becoming more powerful, and that the local nobles are being corrupted by Mola Ram's efforts.

*** Seeing how he was able to give Short Round precise directions to escape the mine off the top of his head, dollars to donuts the Maharajah was able to get himself to safety just fine.

** Also, it was the brainwashed kid Maharaja whipping Shorty; he could probably just swing it hard enough to sting, but not do any real damage unlike the Taskmaster, who whips Indy hard enough to leave bloody gashes all over his back.

* Short Round barely cries out when being whipped. Indy says he been on the street since the age of ''four''. It's not hard to imagine he had endured ''worse''.

** Just what exactly happened to the prince ''after'' being brainwashed? Short Round snapped him out of it, then skedaddled with Willie and Indie. ''They left a child in the mine.''

* Why the stones worked in Indy's favor even though he didn't worship Shiva. The Shaman prayed to Shiva prior to their departure to Pankot to help guide them. So Shiva was on his side, whether he worshiped Shiva or not. As well as the fact that because Indy spoke Hindi, he knew how to invoke Shiva through the stones just by knowing the language. Whilst Mola Ram who was aware of both Shiva and Kali pretty much tarnished the former. Gods get more pissed off at believers tarnishing their truths than those that don't believe in them at all. In addition, Shiva specifically has been known to acknowledge worship even when it's inadvertent and the worshiper doesn't know or realize what he's doing: there is a Hindu story of a thief who receives Shiva's blessing after the thief spends the night hiding in a tree. The tree is a kind sacred to Shiva, and the thief spends the night idly pulling leaves from the tree and dropping them, where they land on a Shivalingam together with milk dripping from the thief's sack of food. If Shiva will acknowledge that, Indy's heartfelt denunciation of Mola Ram in Shiva's name would likely qualify as well.

** That and the possibility that he doesn't truly believe in the god he claims to worship and that he's simply using his self proclaimed belief to control the other Thugees. [[TruthInTelevision Like a real cult.]]

* In typical ''Indiana Jones'' ArtisticLicenceBiology fashion, we get the line, "Those aren't big birds, sweetheart, they're giant vampire bats." They're actually fruit bats; vampires are small, nocturnal, and South American, all of which the well-travelled Indy should know. But this is ''Indy'' telling ''Willie'', and she's been getting on his nerves for the last day and a half. He's winding her up.

** There's also the factor that he probably didn't rip Willie's heart out, because he wanted to do something more terrible to her. Such as making the brain washed Indy restrain her and lower her to the pit.

* The ArtisticLicense regarding Kali worship makes more sense when you consider that Mola Ram is blaspheming Hinduism in universe.

** Of course, Indy was too focused thinking about Willie.
