According to the Mythology, during the sea churning by the Gods and Demons, Amrit or Nectar came out, after this, the Gods tried to stop the Demons from taking away the Amrit, but they failed to do so. After this, Gods went to Lord Vishnu for help. Lord Vishnu took the form of Mohini, a beautiful woman, I order to woo the demons and succeeded in it. Mohini took the Nectar from the Demons and distributed it among the Gods. But, one of the Demons called Svarbhanu understood this trick of Lord Vishnu and sneaked in the line of Gods and consumed the Nectar of life. After this, Lord Surya and Lord Chandra revealed this to Vishnu and he sent his Sudarshan Chakra to kill Svarbhanu. Vishnu succeeded in separating Svarbhanu’s head from his torso but since by that time he was immortal, he turned two different parts and his head and torso were called Rahu and Ketu respectively. It is belived that upto this day, Rahu and Ketu prove to be a curse to the Sun and Moon.
