In a bizzare instance of superstition, a two-year-old boy was ‘married’ to a dog in Orissa to ‘ward off evil spirits’, a media report said Wednesday. According to Oriya web portal Odisha.com, the ‘marriage’ ritual was performed Monday evening by Munda tribals of Patarapur village in the coastal Jajpur district, some 130 km from here. There are numerous instances of such ‘weddings’ in rural Orissa where literacy rates are low.
