Comment: The deamon Kala Rahu tries to eat the goddess of the moon Dewi Ratih. In heaven Vishnu decaptivates the head of Kala Rahu. But after drinking a powerful serum which gives immortality, Rahu's head survives. Seeking revenge Rahu tries to deprive the gods of light by trying to eat the sun and the moon. In modern version the moon(or sun) has been replaced by the goddess Dewi Ratih.
