Tribal tea garden workers in West Tripura organised a Hindu wedding ceremony for two frogs, this tradition is called 'Banger Biye.'

This uncanny custom is carried out as the workers believed that it would appease the Hindu rain God, Lord Indra and thus bring rainfall, which would save them from the drought-stricken condition of their tea garden.

In the marriage, 2 toads were married performing all the rituals from bath in pond or river to new dresses, exchange of garlands, and applying of vermilion.
