Betcha there’s few praying for ‘no rain’.

Post by SamCogar on Sat Jul 25, 2009 4:26 am

Indian farmers -- desperate for rain -- have asked their unmarried daughters to plow dry fields naked, in a bid to spark interest from the weather gods, and bring some badly needed monsoon rain.

The nude girls in the eastern India state of Bihar chanted hymns as they plowed the fields, asking for rain, witnesses told Reuters.

"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, told Reuters.

"This is the most trusted social custom in the area and the villagers have vowed to continue this practice until it rains very heavily," she told Reuters.
