Devotees at a shrine in western India’s Maharashtra throw their babies from a building onto a cloth sheet held below, for good luck. And you thought your childhood was traumatic.

Now, I don’t necessarily think this is bizarre. No more bizarre than say, circumcision or Lady Ga Ga. I wouldn’t choose it for my child, then again I am not from Maharashtra, but I wonder what kind of long term psychological affects falling 2 stories has on a youngster.
