The scorching heat in India has prompted people to find ways to get relief from it. While there are certain desperate measures are taken by people to beat the heat, the priest of a temple in Karnataka went to step ahead to pray to the rain god earlier this week.
The pandits of Someshwara temple in Bengaluru organised a special Pooja to please the rain god so that he would show mercy in the form of monsoon.
Although praying for the rain god is not something new but this Pooja has a bizarre appeal.
In the pictures shared by a news agency, the three priests while one of them is conducting hawan, the other two are seen sitting in huge utensils filled with water and in another picture, they can be seen using mobiles while they sat immersed in the water above the waist.

They should have a book to read mantras. This is not the way.

Why they have to even recite then should have told Alexa to find someone to do it and they could come and eat the prasad later. This is hilarious!

Apart from this, many also joked that the pandits were playing PUBG.
