Tug of war planned to break the drought

Htay Myint Maung

AFTER three years of drought, township authorities in Natogyi Township have decided to take matters into their own hands by holding a five-day tug of war event to bring on the rains. According to ancient Myanmar custom, staging a tug of war as monks recite religious verses can break a drought. The event will be held from 7-11 October in Mandalay Region’s Myingyan District.
