Do you know why RAHU tortures the SUN and the MOON by eclipsing them?
RAHU's father is Demon Viprasitthi (not Enthiran's chiti) and mother is Simmikai (not silk Simitha-ok). One day Lord Vishnu wanted to offer the NECTAR OF IMMORTALITY to all the 7 planetary Gods. Lord Vishnu took the form of MOHINI and brought out the nectar by churning the Milky Ocean (paal kadhal)...wOw!
While the nectar was being offered to the Angels (the 7 planetary Gods), RAHU disguised himself sitting between the SUN and MOON somehow managed to drink the nectar which were forbidden to Demons like him.
After seeing the deception, the SUN and the MOON complained to Lord Vishnu. Vishnu immediately took out his chakra or discus and severed RAHU's head cutting it into two, the head at one end and the tail at the other end (Ketu). But the nectar has already gone down into the throat of RAHU; therefore it became immortal like the other planetary Gods. From then onwards, it lived on to torture the SUN and the MOON by eclipsing them. The SUN and the MOON are paying the price for betraying RAHU. The eclipses are over only when both the SUN or MOON comes out from RAHU's half cut-body, if not it would be total darkness forever.
