The planet Saturn, called Kaiwan, is often depicted in South Asian imagery with a staff.
Khurshid, kneeling on the right in the blue dress and orange cloak, has shaved her head and donned the robes of a holy man. A group of supplicants sit behind her. Below, the three men who wronged her seek cures for their ailments: Kaiwan holding a staff, has gone blind, Sharif has lost a hand to leprosy, and Latif has developed a palsy.
