  • Caption: Fighting War With Cow Dun Video Unique id 1375668 Caption VID BY CATERS- In a bizarre custom, thousands of people from two different groups in an Indian village waged a war against each other by throwing cow dung cakes for 'good health'. A day after Ugadi festivities- the local spring festival every year, Kairuppala village in Andhra Pradesh in southern India resounds with the thwack and tang of flying cow dung. Horde of people gather and participate in the 'Pidakala War' or cow-dung cake- a symbolic war over a mythological marriage dispute. The custom started long ago when Lord Veerabhadraswamy, a fearsome form of the Hindu god Shiva wanted to marry Goddess Bhadrakali but there was opposition to the wedding and it led to a dispute.
