Villagers in India have held a frog wedding in the hope of bringing rain.

priests chanted scriptures for the frog groom, named Punarvasu and his amphibian bride Pushala, were joined in holy Hindu matrimony by villagers hoping the ancient custom will bring monsoon rains to their drought-stricken district.
