Chakala Dangol, 75, holds a coconut on his hand before throwing it towards the devotees from the top of the chariot of Rato during the chariot festival in Lalitpur May 21, 2013. It is believed that whoever grabs the coconut and returns it to the chariot will be blessed with a son. Rato Machhindranath is known as the god of rain and both Hindus and Buddhists worship Machhindranath for good rain to prevent drought during the rice harvest season.
