Cow Wedding: Sacred Cow And Bull Are Married In India
A COW and a bull have been married off in a lavish Indian wedding - costing £10,000. More than 5,000 villagers turned up to watch sacred cow Ganga and Prakash get hitched during the Hindu ceremony held near Indore in Madya Pradesh. The nuptials were organised by Ganga’s guardian, Gopal Patwari, to save the state’s harvest from a ‘natural disaster’. The wedding took two months to organise and cost Rs 1million (about £10,000) - half the cost of the average British wedding. Invitations were sent to 10,000 residents of three closely connected villages, encouraging them to donate what they could spare.
