Bizarre wedding: Frog married to a bamboo puppet to ensure rainfall in Assam
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.
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.
Women and children gathered to take part in the wedding.
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.
