India girl marries dog to ward off evil spirits

fourcornermag

In a remote part of India, young Mangli Munda is

marrying a stray dog to fight off evil spirits that

her family believes she has.

The dog was found by the woman’s father. The big

wedding was taken care of by the 18-year-old’s

parents, to the dismay of the wife-to-be. Munda

wasn’t pleased with her parents’ selection of a

groom, saying, “I am not happy with this

marriage.”

If you think Munda’s father was solely to blame

for this unusual arrangement, he wasn’t. Munda’s

mother was adamant about the need for her

daughter to get hitched to the hound named

Sheru. The pooch even arrived stylin’ and profilin’

as most grooms often do — chauffeured in a car.

Munda’s mother mentioned, “We have to spend

money on this wedding. That is the only way we

can get rid of her bad luck and ensure the

benevolence of the village.”

But Munda won’t have to love and honor her

husband all the days of her life. The relationship

isn’t legally binding, which will probably keep this

bride from going barking mad.

In this remote village in the eastern state of

Jharkhand, the ceremony isn’t unheard of. It’s just

a tradition meant to ensure the longevity of a

couple’s marriage when Munda is eventually

married to a human groom. And, hopefully, her

next husband won’t turn out to be a dog.
