Two frogs were married in India so that a drought might end – and a village might live happily ever after.

It’s custom in some parts of India to perform frog marriages during water shortages to invoke rain gods.

According to mythological belief, holding a frog marriage ensures ample rainfall. As part of the wedding, a wild female frog is married off to a wooden figurine, representative of the Hindu god of rain, Indra.

“We have faith. Last year also, we had performed this ritual, so, all of us who have been affected by poor rainfall, have decided to hold this ritual. We have proof of last year. This year also we expect god to be kind to us, and therefore, we have organized a frog marriage,” said a local resident.

The wedding was solemnized by a priest and all rituals held were the same as that of a standard Indian wedding. Vermillion was applied on the frog’s forehead – insignia of a married Indian woman.

Even in this age and time, marriages of frog, goat, donkey and tree are still solemnized in Indian interior villages for the early arrival of the monsoon.
