Indian farmers have said that their unmarried daughters should plow their fields naked so as to anger the gods. Doing so will bring some much needed monsoon rain to the farm lands in the country.
According to witnesses, girls in the Bihar state were plowing their fields in the nude, helped by clothed elderly women in the village. Chants of ancient hymns were then practiced after sunset to invoke the weather gods.
One village official said: They (villagers) believe their acts would get the weather gods badly embarrassed, who in turn would ensure bumper crops by sending rains." It was described as a "Most trusted social custom".
