INDIA: A solar eclipse is a celestial event that occurs when the moon passes between the Earth and the Sun.

Solar eclipses coincide with the new moon. i.e., the beginning of a lunar cycle where the moon is either absent from the night sky or is visible as a thin crescent.

A Solar Eclipse, or Surya Grahan, is set to take place on October 25th, a day after the Indian festival of Diwali. The partial eclipse will be visible from 5:12 PM to 5:56 PM.

According to the Hindu myths and legends, there are certain things that one should do as well as refrain from doing while the sun is veiled by the moon.

DO’S:

1. As per the ancient scriptures, once the solar eclipse is over, people are advised to take a bath, wear new clothes, and clean the house.

5. Chanting Lord Shiva’s hymns during the eclipse helps to fend off the negative effects of the eclipse.
