They could not wait any longer,they wanted rain to grow crops but the dry spell it was taking too long than they had expected.They thus chose to revisit an age-old custom to please the Rain Gods.
‘ It’s a traditional belief that when a frog marriage is performed, the Barun Devata [the rain-god] is pleased and the rain comes,’ former councillor Bijoy Das told The Hindu newspaper.
The wedding was conducted in the town of Berhampur the northwestern Indian state of Assam .
There was chanting of Hindu hymns as the farmers put colourful streaks on the female frog’s head during the ceremony at a local temple.
The wedding of the frogs – male Barun (meaning wind) and female Bijuli (meaning thunder) – was accompanied by all the traditions of Assamese weddings, including songs and gifts presented to the bride.
