People rush past barriers to get their hands on rice seeds during the annual royal ploughing ceremony...
People rush past barriers to get their hands on rice seeds during the annual royal ploughing ceremony in Bangkok May 13, 2010. Sacred Thai oxen predicted good fortunes for the coming year on Thursday with abundant rains and healthy crops, in stark contrast to other forecasts calling for crops to shrink during a ravaging drought. The ancient ploughing ceremony in Buddhist Thailand, overseen by Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn, marks the end of the dry season and is meant to herald an auspicious start for the rice-planting season for the world biggest rice exporter. In the ceremony, the oxen ploughed a symbolic furrow in the dusty ground then tucked into banana-leaf platters, signifying a bountiful harvest.
