Frogs weddings: in the hope of bringing rain

16 posts in this topic

No matter how confident they feel about their relationship every bride worries their future spouse will croak at the alter come the big day.

But in the remote village of Takhatpur, India, croaking is the norm during the much-celebrated frog weddings.

Residents believe these unusual nuptials will bring rain to relieve them of water shortages brought on by severe drought.

Was this an arranged marriage? Hope it works out, I would hate to think how their hundreds of tadpoles would feel if they don't make it.

That won't work. If they want rain they should just come to Seattle in Juneuary. :td:

I heard that Mrs. Frog has already let another frog fertilize her eggs. Mr. Frog ran off with some little hussy who just recently lost her tail and left the Mrs. to raise their tadpoles on her own.

Now I wonder if it rained or not... and what would the people think if their ritual did not work at all.

They might think, "Wow, that was an awesome party."

I see no harm in this at all. Arranged marriages for poeple? Well, that's one thing. But for frogs, thats fine.
