    Desperate times call for desperate measures. With rains playing truant, delaying its progress to Vidarbha, people in Nagpur are rallying with traditional methods even though it would make purists squirm. On Saturday morning a sizeable crowd, consisting largely of women and children, participated in a unique marriage that’s expected to usher in the monsoon season, hopefully,
    at the earliest. The groom was Raja and the bride Rani. The two were frogs. Their marriage was solemnized, to please the Rain God, by the residents of Futala, a suburb in Nagpur. It’s believed that if frogs are married off with full Vedic rites and traditional marriage rituals, it could bring rain within a few days. For the record, the met office said that the monsoon is expected to arrive in Vidarbha by June 24. Raja proved difficult to find. It took three days of intense search to find him. On the other hand, Rani was found near Telangkhedi Lake, a stone’s throw distance from Futala.
