Minor girls in the Damoh district of Madhya Pradesh were allegedly made to walk naked in a village. The backward and problematic move was part of a ritual that intends to please rain gods. Reportedly, wooden shafts with frogs tied to them were put on the girls’ shoulders while they were being paraded naked.
Local women, who were participating in the ritual, told Mirror Now that their crops have dried up and they are desperately waiting for rainfall. In an attempt to tide over the rain deficit, the little girls in the village were made to walk around naked.
