Wedding is a natural ceremony held between humans to bond the relationship of a girl and a boy and among their families. But a recent news comes up with the wedding ceremony of two frogs in the belief that it will bring showers in the state, held in Uttar Pradesh’s Gorakhpur. The entire area was facing a drought-like situation and a month had already passed as there was no rain. People performed many rituals like Hawan Pujan and come up to the conclusion of marriage of a pair of frogs, hoping the ritual will brings rain in the state.
On July 13, a group of women in the Maharajganj district of the state soaked the local MLA Jaimangal Kanojiya and Nagar Palika chairman Krishna Gopal Jaiswal in a mud tub to please rain god ‘Indra’. Jaiswal said, “Facing a drought-like situation, the women only followed the age-old tradition to please the rain god.”
