As we say goodbye to May and the driest autumn in 8 years, everyone is a bit uneasy about the lack of rain. It is reported that, if it doesn’t rain by the end of June, billions of dollars will be lost on this year’s crop.
It got us thinking! How can we make it rain?? So we have done some research and here are 3 bizarre tips on how people try to make it rain around the world.
Cat splashing in Thailand
There is a rain ritual in Thailand where they take cats to sacred sites and splash them with water. The cat’s screams are believed to bring on wet times!
Indian Frog Marriage
Do you rrrribbit take thee rrribbit as your lawfully wedded rrribbit?...Yes! Believe it or not in India they arrange a Frog marriage to please the rain gods hoping for monsoon showers.
Men sit in Tubs and Pray
Another rain ritual in India involves priests sitting in tubs of water while performing ‘Parjanya Yagna’ a ritual to bring rains through Vedic techniques in Ahmedabad.
We are remaining hopeful that June will come up with the goods to produce a favourable season. Read our blog on The Top 4 Weather Apps and keep an eye on that radar.
