World s Largest Animal

World s Largest Animal Detail
The Gadimai Mela, a Hindu fair takes place every five years in Bariyarpur, Bara district, in the south of Nepal. It has been used to schedule in Hindu month of Kartik (October-November). Gadimai is another name for the Hindu goddess Durga. Gadimai consist of two words (Gadi + Mai).  Gadi is a name and Mai is a Hindi word for mother.
The Gadimai Mela is infamous for the large number of animals sacrifice (up to 200000) to appease the Gadimai. The fair reaches its climax on an ‘auspicious’ day, when thousands of buffaloes are sacrificed. The blood letting that takes place turns the entire area into a marshy land of blood.
The first ritual during Gadimai is to worship the weapons (sword, knife and axe) which are used in the sacrifice. The pre-sacrificial rituals start with chanting different hymns to appease the Gadimai by priests. The sacrifice starts with the offering of five different animals: pig, buffalo, goat, wild rats and birds which includes chicken and pigeon. The different animals represent the mental obscuration sacrificed by the community including anger, stupidity and desire. After the sacrifice of the first animal, a goat, thousands of pigeons are sacrificed by severing their heads. Next three wild rats are brought and sacrificed before a comb like pole. After this more than 250 people carrying naked swords and axes wrapped in red clothes, all with a license to kill, approach the temple. They rush towards the field, where more than 7000 young buffaloes are kept. Before the beasts are slaughtered, seven buffaloes tied to a pole undergo the sacrificial ritual. In the end, only the heads of those gentle animals, which were alive just a few moments ago, remain. Please, do any possible thing to stop it.
