From CNN Darkness falls in Asia during total eclipse, luring masses
What could be more mystical than the even temporary disappearance of the source of all light and life on our planet? Stirring primitive fears and longings, yesterday's solar eclipse was quite visible to millions. Some say the day bodes deep and lasting changes for every single person alive. Is it the Age of Aquarius yet?
QUOTE In India, an eclipse is considered inauspicious. Women forbid pregnant daughters-in-law from going outside out of the belief that their children could be born with marks. Some temples won't offer any prayers on the day of an eclipse -- such as the one next to the planetarium in Mumbai, which said it won't even light a stick of incense. UNQUOTE
