who's more embarrassed?

I don't want to poke fun of other people's beliefs, but here I go.

In a bid to embarrass the weather gods into bringing some monsoon rain, Eastern Indian farmers have asked their daughters to plow in the buff.

"They (villagers) believe their acts would get the weather gods badly embarrassed, who in turn would ensure bumper crops by sending rains," Upendra Kumar, a village council official, said from Bihar's remote Banke Bazaar town.

So who is more embarrassed the gods or the daughters? It seems to me the gods are getting a show at the expense of the daughters.
