The Hindu legend of the solar eclipse is very similar to that of the Mongolians. It describes a quarry between two groups, both of whom are wanting to drink a potion of immortality. When one group was found to be given preference, one member decided to dress up as a member of the other group in order to receive the potion. When he was discovered by the sun and the moon, his head was chopped off. In anger, his head now chases them down and consumes them. However, with no body attached to the head, the sun and the moon simply fall out of his neck. Every time a solar eclipse happened, the ancient Hindus believed it was simply the head, Rahu, attempting to get revenge once more.
