The MahaBharata Eclipses – 1


“Tri-coloured clouds with their extremities white and red and necks black, charged with lightning, and resembling maces (in figure) envelope the sun in both twilights. I have seen the sun, the moon, and the stars to be all blazing. No difference in their aspect is to be noted in the evening. I have seen this all day and all night. All this forbodes fear. On even the fifteenth night of the lighted-fortnight in (the month of) Kartika the moon, divested of splendour, became invisible, or of the hue of fire, the firmament being of the hue of the lotus.” A part of Dhritarashtra’s lament before the war : Book 6 : Mahabharata
