Vuyyuru (Krishna): A bovine wedding was performed on a grand scale at Kuderu village in Pamidimukkala mandal on Sunday. There is a tale behind this unique fete. DSP E Ashok Kumar Goud reared a cow after getting it from a Goshala in Dwaraka Tirumala long ago. The cow gave birth to a male calf on Maha Sivarathri day.

Considering it as Nandi, the primary vehicle of Lord Shiva, the DSP named the calf `Mahadeva’ and reared it with love and affection. The calf grew up and attained the age of four years. The DSP wanted to let the bull free in the village as `Ambotu’ without using his pet for agricultural operations.

When he revealed his intention, Vedic scholars advised him to perform the wedding of the bull with a cow in a traditional manner before letting it free as Ambotu, which is considered sacred. As per their advice, the DSP performed the wedding of Mahadeva in a traditional manner amidst chanting of Vedic hymns. The entire village attended the wedding and blessed the bovine couple.
