Indian Lady Marries Snake by Zahymaka(m): 8:55am On Jun 04, 2006
Indian Ladies Marry Animals

On AFP, via Yahoo News I got this:

A woman who fell in love with a snake has married the reptile at a traditional Hindu wedding celebrated by 2,000 guests in India's Orissa state, reports said.

Bimbala Das wore a silk saree for the ceremony Wednesday at Atala village near the Orissa state capital Bhubaneswar.

Priests chanted mantras to seal the union, but the snake failed to come out of a nearby ant hill where it lives, the Press Trust of India (PTI) said on Friday.

A brass replica snake stood in for the hesitant groom.

"Though snakes cannot speak nor understand, we communicate in a peculiar way," Das, 30, told the agency.

"Whenever I put milk near the ant hill where the cobra lives, it always comes out to drink.

"I always get to see it every time I go near the ant hill. It has never harmed me," she added.

Villagers welcomed the wedding in the belief it would bring good fortune and laid on a feast for the big day.

Snakes and particularly the King Cobra are venerated in India as religious symbols worn by Lord Shiva, the god of destruction.

Das, from a lower caste, converted to the animal-loving vegetarian Vaishnav sect whose local elders gave her permission to marry the cobra, the world's largest venomous snake that can grow up to five metres.

"I am happy," said her mother Dyuti Bhoi, who has two other daughters and two sons to marry off.

"Bimbala was ill," Bhoi told local OTV channel. "We had no money to treat her. Then she started offering milk to the snake , she was cured. That made her fall in love."

Das has moved into a hut built close to the ant hill since the wedding.

Earlier this year, a tribal girl was married off to a dog on the outskirts of Bhubaneswar.


Since the article is short, I have quoted it in full. My source is http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20060602/wl_sthasia_afp/afplifestyleindiasocietysnakemarriageoffbeat

I'm personally amused by this, and while I do no believe in attacking someone's belief's I'd like to know what you think about it.

Hello 2c I'm quoting the last line of the article:

Zahymaka:

Earlier this year, a tribal girl was married off to a dog on the outskirts of Bhubaneswar.
Re: Indian Lady Marries Snake by 2cantango(f): 4:42pm On Jun 04, 2006

The human race is just becoming more and more feral as morals are thrown away embarassed
Re: Indian Lady Marries Snake by Zahymaka(m): 4:57pm On Jun 04, 2006
The Indian society is highly partriachal. It's only the ladies getting married off. Sacred or no sacred, I'm sure the men wouldn't want to be consigned with a snake or a dog for the rest of their lives. Good ol' men.
Re: Indian Lady Marries Snake by 2cantango(f): 5:02pm On Jun 04, 2006
I guess it says a lot about the men if the women would prefer to marry snakes or dogs tongue

Males and females have been having sex with animals for years, I guess slowly we'll see that the number of people committing to marry animals will rise.

It's the same as when my Mum was a child, same sex marriages were never heard of - I'm affraid for my angels future. lipsrsealed lipsrsealed
