Let it rain

More than 250 people in northern Bangladesh attended a wedding ceremony between two frogs as part of a ritual to bring rain to the region.

Villagers organised the wedding ceremony because the region was suffering a water shortage as it waited for monsoon rains to arrive.

Guests were served a traditional wedding feast of rice, lentils, fish, beef and sweets.

According to an eye witness, Mohammad Kalon: “The bride and groom were in special wedding dress. We blessed them in the ceremony and released them in a nearby pond afterwards.” He added: “Last night there was rain. I believe it was because of the wedding.”
