INDIA: In the country of Narendra Modi, Minister Lalita Yadav attends the wedding of two frogs. The minister in question is actually Minister of State of Madhya Pradesh, in charge of Women and Child Development. The marriage ceremony took place on Friday 22nd June, in the city of Chattarpur in Madhya Pradesh. The objective is to appease the rain god so that He puts an end to the drought that affects the Bundelkhand region.
Incidentally, numerous areas of Uttar Pradesh are also experiencing a strong heat wave and limited rainfall. Hence, in the city of Varanasi, a similar matrimony was also held, but instead of real frogs, plastic frogs were used. The bride and the groom, were placed on plates decorated with garlands as a priest chanted Sanskrit verses and performed a special prayer to please the god of rain.

The nuptial function included a feast for 500 people. The married couple consisted of real frogs…
