Cow and Bull Married in Lavish Wedding in India
Sun 20-04-2014

More than 5,000 villagers turned up to watch sacred cow Ganga and bull Prakash get married during the Hindu ceremony held near Indore in Madya Pradesh.

The nuptials were organized by Ganga's guardian, Gopal Patwari, to save the state's harvest from a 'natural disaster'.

"Natural calamities like hailstorms and heavy rain occurred in nearby areas, destroying their crops," he said.

"To prevent this from happening to our villages we organized this wedding on the advice of Sadhus and holy men."

"We have been told this will maintain peace in our village."

The wedding took two months to organize and cost one million rupees.

Invitations were sent to 10,000 residents of three closely connected villages, encouraging them to donate what they could spare.

Most are farmers growing wheat, barley, beans and cotton and so heavily depend on a good harvest to survive.
