17 Asking God to Send Rain

Asking God to Send Rain

Posted on May 23, 2012 by team

It had not been raining in a little village Saty of the Almaty region for a month already and so the locals decided to arrange “Tasattyk” – invoke to the Supreme Being for help. It’s a holiday in many regions that have their own traditons related to it.

No rain – no good grass – no fat cattle. This lamb will become a piacular offering for the lives of thousands of other lambs.

    Appalling ignorance. These tribalistic mossbacks are partying like it was 1399. They took a modern, quality Soviet experience/education, threw it away and decided “independence” and the Stone Age was better.

    “River! Take the blood, bring us rain!”.

    It’s an excuse for a social gathering.

    At least a tribe is like an extended family and everyone helps each other more “primitive” tribes have/had warriors that will die to protect it they shared the land the land belonged to that one tribe as a group not a person so they actually have a pretty good society.

    Their rain calling skils are remarkable, but their culinary skills are poor. Boiling meat and some pasta? And thats a festivity lunch? What do they eat on ordinary day? Raw meat? Grass? Mud?
    Theese lambs deserve better treatment…

      Perhaps you’d rather they eat Tofu and Brown Rice then to circumvent cruelty to defenseless animals???

        I’d rather they properly cook a delicious meal after they slaughter the lamb, you know, rather then this gruel they apparently make with it. A bunch of meat and guts + pasta boiled in a hole in the ground is a poor excuse for a meal, let alone a festive one. They could do better.

      you are missing the point…maybe they choose to live a simple life….at least they are happier then you and me…

      Maybe they had a bottle of ketchup available on the picnic blanket to add flavor?

      Notice how it’s almost all very oldsters with a few young children?

    These people are Kazakhs. They are not doing anything that doesn’t happen to meat in a processing plant. The way they do it is actually better and more organic. I cannot believe the ignorant posts on this thread. I’ve been to Kazakhstan and they were very nice folks. They were some of the most hospitable people I’ve ever encountered.

    • Hirsh says:

      “They are not doing anything that doesn’t happen to meat in a processing plant.” BULL – no legitimate meat processing plant would get away with slaughtering and preparing animals like these people. Not in any county i would buy meat in.

    What are you eating hypocrites in your home?
    P.S.υπο+κριτής=υποκριτής,means hypocrite
    (under of justice).

    Different people are different what is an appealing meal to you may not be to someone from another culture and those are noodles not pasta.

    No rain, eh? Come to Serbia, it keeps raining for over two weeks now.

    i think it’s their culture and the life they have chosen for themselves. so be it. why to disturb their existence with our own morality.
