Baby Hurling In India


Children are tossed from a height of 20 feet (6 meters) in the premises of a temple in Maharashtra, in the belief that it would enhance the kids' physical health and stamina.

The Mamma Devi Goddess Temple in Jalna town of Aurangabad District has been witnessing the tradition of child hurling for decades.

Devotees pray for their wishes, and once their prayers are fulfilled, they express their gratitude to the God by hurling their children from a height of 20 feet.

The ritual is carried out by the temple priest, who throws the child from a height to land safely in the hands of devotees waiting below tightly holding a cloth.

Normally a child from the age of two months to four years is hurled. Devotees and priest claim that no child has ever been hurt in the process.
