Naked, unmarried Indian girls plow fields to embarrass gods to bring rains

New Delhi, Fri, 24 Jul 2009 ANI

New Delhi, July 24 (ANI): Farmers in the drought-stricken Bihar, an eastern Indian state, have asked their unmarried daughters to embarrass the weather gods into bringing the badly-needed monsoon rains by plowing the fields in the buff.


According to witnesses, with a little help from elderly female relatives, the nude girls plowed the fields and after sunset, chanted ancient hymns to invoke the gods, reports the China Daily.


"They (villagers) believe their acts would get the weather gods badly embarrassed, who in turn would ensure bumper crops by sending rains," Upendra Kumar, a village council official, said from Bihar's remote Banke Bazaar town.


"This is the most trusted social custom in the area and the villagers have vowed to continue this practice until it rains very heavily," he added. (ANI)
