Gorakhpur–A group of people organised a wedding of frogs to appease the rain god, Lord Indra.

The ‘wedding’ was held on Tuesday night with all rituals.

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 and shlokas were chanted by a group of priests.

The guests were later treated to dinner by the organisers. (IANS)
