The News Cover: In Damoh District of Madhya Pradesh, there is a village named Baniya. The village had been going through a drought as it had not been raining. Its crops were dying. Villagers were very worried about this. To solve the matter, the villagers did a very shocking thing. Let me tell you. 6 very young minor girls were made to strip. Young girls were made to walk naked with a bamboo stick rested on their shoulders with a frog tied to it. 

All the girls were made to walk like that and they were surrounded by women who were singing songs. They sang songs because they believed the Rain God would be pleased to see the girls walking naked and would bless the village by making it rain. This is why the women were singing. The women collected raw food grain from villagers during this procession and then cook food for at a local temple. 

Two videos of the girls walking around naked had gone viral on social media. The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) also sought a report from the Damoh district administration about this incident. Damoh collector S Krishna Chaitanya said, "People have many superstitions. They believed that making girls walk naked can make it rain. Some believe it is bad luck to cut nails at night, while some believe it is bad luck when a black cat crosses your path. People have many such believes and it is difficult to explain people. All we can do is create awareness. We do not know if it will really rain if the girls are made to walk naked. We will keep creating awareness about this and try explaining people."
