Dozens of men in the village of Ujjain Taluk, central India, allowed themselves to be trampled by stampeding cows on Friday. The ritual is the part of Govardhan Puja, the fourth day of Diwali or "festival of lights", the most important Hindu holidays. People usually pray for their wishes to be granted by Lord Pashupatinath (Lord of Animals) and in return perform the cow-trampling as a mark of gratitude. The ritual have been performed for hundreds of years, however no one was allegedly injured as of yet.
