Frog marriage to please 'rain god'
noimage.jpg
Udupi, July 16: The Zilla Nagarika Samiti, on Tuesday evening organised a wedding ceremony of frogs, near Service Bus Stand here to please the rain god' From Diana Circle, two frogs were brought to Clock Tower Circle, in a decorated pull cart, in a grand procession.

The wedding was marked by wearing toe rings, Mangala Suthra and exchanging garlands by the frog couple.

Speaking to the media, Samiti general secretary Nithyananda Volakad, who is also a councillor of the Udupi City Muncipal Council said: "By this time, rain should have poured heavily. People of the district especially farmers have been suffering due to want of sufficient as rains. So we organised the frog marriage to please the rain god. We hope it will pour soon." As it was an unusual ceremony in the Coastal Karnataka, some termed it publicity gimmick by the organisers. Many objected the torturing of frogs.

At one stage, traffic was also diverted to ease the movement of frog procession.

Breaking News: Varundev saw frogs getting married and fell unconscious. As a result, there will be no rain for next couple of hours. This is Mr.Bond reporting for Abhi Tak :)
