Superstition: Physically challenged children were buried during solar eclipse

Several physically challenged (disabled)children, who were suffering from paralysis, polio, etc., were buried by their parents up to the neck level in a pit during solar eclipse in July 2009, leaving their heads out side of soil, with a belief that this type of burying during solar / lunar eclipses will cure them from ailments. This incident has happened in Gulbarga area of Karnataka, India.

The children remained in the pit for the burial treatment during the entire period of the eclipse.
