Man marries dog to ward off curse
13 Nov 2007

SIVAGANGA: A 33-year-old man in Sivaganga district of Tamil Nadu has married a dog in a bid to ward off the "curse" of a canine couple he had killed 15 years ago.

Selva Kumar tied a 'mangal sutra' on the animal, petnamed Selvi, at a Ganesh temple in Manamadurai on Sunday. The 10-year-old saree-clad "bride" was brought to the temple in a grand procession. Kumar, who vowed to protect Selvi all through its life, said he married the animal as per the advice of an astrologer.

According to Kumar, when he was 18-years-old, he had clubbed to death a dog-couple when they were mating and hung them on a tree. After the incident, he suffered a stroke and could not move his left arm and legs and also turned deaf.

Kumar claimed an astrologer advised him that all his problems will be solved once he did the penance by marrying a bitch, Kumar said.
