Gorakhpur: A group of people organized a wedding of frogs to appease the rain god.
The ‘wedding’ was held on Tuesday night with all rituals.
Radhakant Verma, who organized 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 and shlokas were chanted by a group of priests.
The guests were later treated to dinner by the organizers.
“This is #Unbelievable, some people in #gorakhpur got a #Frog married so that it could rain,” wrote a Twitter user.
