Residents of the Indian suburb of Nagpur, in the state of Maharashtra, married two frogs in a solemn ritual to help usher in the monsoon season, Al Arabiya reports, quoting an article in the Times of India.

The groom, Raja, and the bride, Rani, were wed over the weekend. Similar ceremonies were held across India.

According to Indian tradition, if frogs are wed in Vedic or Hindu rituals, the ‘rain god’ may be appeased.

The monsoon season is two weeks late.

    I suggest when you publish such stories ‘Two frogs married in India’, you should also publish the reason behind it as the readers of your publication are mainly in the Middle East. As one reader ‘Sara’ rightly asked ‘why frogs’. I am sure there is a strong reason behind it. One thing I noticed, frogs are seen enjoyed during the rainy season.

    LOL @ Fadi’s comment & a reply to M Kutty the reason was given “According to Indian tradition, if frogs are wed in Vedic or Hindu rituals, the ‘rain god’ may be appeased. The monsoon season is two weeks late”.

    Now THIS is hilarious. In one memorable storm in England in 1844, people held out hats to catch dozens of falling frogs. Such small creatures, once airborne, might be carried aloft for an hour or more within the strong updrafts of a thunderstorm. So maybe that’s why they married the frogs to induce the rain ?
