Eclipses are forerunners of evil in India

According to tradition, at the time of an eclipse, Rahu, the huge serpent, gulps down the sun or the moon.  Eclipse is the decease of heavenly bodies. When the monster spits out sun or moon, the solar eclipse or lunar eclipse is over. Food and drink taken during an eclipse possess poisonous properties, and people therefore abstain from eating and drinking until the eclipse is over. People bathe at the end of the eclipse to get rid of the pollution. If anyone not exposed and remains in a closed room, he is exempted from taking a bath.
