Indian Farmers Ask Their Daughters to Plow Naked

 

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".

will never realise it what is the context between poughing naked and the rain.

  It all depends  
 
upon whom you plow.

  ...  
 
What I don't get is with the human minds abilty to reason these people don't try and set up some empirical tests to avoid having to plough naked.

For example: Plough naked and see if it increases crop production. If it does then get on the UN or something and explain how starving Africans can feed themselves.

If it doesn't then realise that maybe it does't work and actualyl try learning about how grow plants with less water or using more drought resistant ones and then seeign if that increases yield.

  If they really wanted...  
 
...to embarrass the Gods they'd get the elderly women to plow naked.

It's a trick, the point of which is to get a lot of hot young girls naked in the fields.

Them Indians is smart.

Bihar is too poor for what you are suggesting, they can barely afford roads ... let alone import seeds which are drought resistant.

Did you just suggest that we let some bihari farmer on the UN? ... you must be kidding.

Well anyway, on the plus side ... most of the girls in bihar are hot, maybe I will visit when I go back home this year heheh ... hope they dont kill me :/

  better yet...  
 
why dont you sell tickets to watch this, or even sell DVDs? You'll make more money doing that and you don't even have to wait for the Gods to show up.

It could be a reality TV show. After each episode the naked girls would get together and vote off whoever they thought was least embarrassing to the Gods. Any time it rained there would be no vote off, since obviously the Gods are sufficiently embarrassed. The winner receives $50,000 and a photoshoot for Playboy.

I think Fox would do this...

I think Fox may soon contact you about your idea...
 
  by: gryphon50a   07/25/2009 04:45 AM     
  They should...  
 
have sex with there daughters in the field and then god will be really angry.

pedophiles?

ok incest is best

  No Pics this Time  
 
I will let it skip this time and not ask for the pictures. My guess is 'virgins' in this town are probably 12yr old.
 
  by: kmazzawi     07/25/2009 03:36 PM     
  I am  
 
not surprised at all. Asia is one place you must visit before you die. They have a God for everything and when in doo do they invoke one, only this time they are about to piss off a God who can make it rain in one day an equivalent of a month, just to make sure none of these naked ladies steps outside without a makeshift floating device.


AND I dont mean hooters.

  stuff like this  
 
is why many don't believe in religion. Dancing to the rain gods, bowing to the totem poles, and sacrificing humans and animals. I believe science is proving those beliefs wrong.

Perhaps those Indians are trying to get those virgins girls hooked up with a man. Show casing their daughters naked in hopes they will marry.

 
  by: slayer06   07/25/2009 11:04 PM     
  Maybe..  
 
The poor farmers are trying to get attention of the government about the conditions of the state? So act of publicity?

Or maybe the idea for them was to make god realize how much pain they are in, by sending their daughters to work naked in a field. After all, god responds to innocent children faster, I guess. Maybe they are asking for pity more than trying to anger the gods.

Yea I agree they aren’t the most scientific bunch, but education lacks as much as the water do, apparently.

I find this bit depressing then funny.

  Maybe we should send this girl..

To help explain some logic to these God worshiping / tricksters.

I lol'ed at the tricking the gods part. Poor peoples.

  Sounds like an idea...  
 
...from a religious pervert.

  The Gods Are Crazy  
 
If only it were that simple!

I would expect to see an angry thunder cloud hovering over every nudist camp and nude beach.

It's worth a try - Hey, ya never know!

If you try enough gods, maybe you'll eventually find one that works!
