A rat peeps out from a hole to drink milk donated by Hindu devotees inside the Karni Mata temple at Deshnoke in the western Indian state of Rajasthan August 16, 2010. Hindu devotees offer prayers in the temple for the betterment of their family and society as the temple has thousands of rats that are fed, protected and worshipped throughout the whole year and is regarded auspicious, if a rat runs across one’s feet.
