Since the frogs’ wedding, Madhya Pradesh has been inundated with rain, roughly 26 percent more than normal, causing flooding across the state, including record-breaking rainfall in Bhopal on Sunday where parts experienced 48mm in less than 24 hours.

So successful was the marriage in bringing the rains that two gates of Bhopal Kaliyasot Dam and Bhadbhada Dam have been opened, while the gates of Kolar Dam were opened for the first time in three years.
The overly successful marriage had to be ended and members of Om Shiv Seva Shakti Mandal of Indrapuri area symbolically divorced the frogs on Wednesday evening, by chanting mantras and physically separating the frogs.
