GULF NEWS – A group of people organised a wedding of frogs (pic below, Twitter/ANI) recently to appease the rain deity.
Radhakant Verma, who organised the event, said, “It is a time-tested belief that frog weddings are held to bring in rains. We have had a long dry spell and farmers, in particular, are upset over the delay in sowing paddy.”
The people at the wedding had a tough time keeping the frog couple in place and scores of people witnessed the event when all mantras were chanted by a group of priests.
The guests were later treated to dinner by the organisers.
