I hate these stories because you kinda know how it is all going to end. The priests in Sambalpur had a bit of mopping up to do after a 19 year old girl chopped off her tongue in a Shiva temple ! Hmm, seems she wasn’t as delighted in her arranged hubby-to-be as her parents were. So she used a blade to cut out her tongue so she could offer it up to the gods in the hope she would get a better younger one. When the priests found her covered in blood the next morning she refused to go a hospital and in fact refused to leave the temple until her wish was granted.
Psst It is going to be awfully hard to find a man now without a tongue for goodness sakes!
