O.K., it's not that complicated.
Devika: DAY-vee-ka

If you want to be really precise, you place the tip of your tongue against your teeth when articulating the 'd' and 't'. This in order to distinguish them clearly from the other, palatal 'd' and 't' that Sanskrit has. An English 'd' is often articulated somewhere in between (alveolar).
