It was the period when Sun and Moon were passing human life on the earth. Sun and Moon were brother and sister whose parents expired in their early age. Sun and Moon were passing life with severe adversity. Every time, they had to take grains on loan. A few villagers used to help them too.
Once, both Sun and Moon were hungry for a couple of days. They could not get grains from anywhere. There was Grahan a money lender in the village. Grahan used to charge interest more than other money lenders. On that day, when Sun and Moon could not get grains from any source, they went to Grahan for loan. Grahan loaned them a kilo of Finger Millet flour (Chuna ku Ata). They brought flour and made bread and then only could satisfy their hunger.
Sun and Moon used to help people. Both sister and brother could not return back flour to Grahan. Grahan used to harass them.
In their birth, Sun and Moon started shining in the sky. On new moon night, Grahan shows cow bone to Sun and asked,” La Myar Chun ser – return my finger miller flour.” On full moon night, Grahan shows cow bone to Moon and ask her to return finger millet flour.
By watching cow bone and fear of Grahan, Sun hides himself on new moon night and moon hides on the full moon night. Due to hiding Sun, there is new moon day eclipse and by hiding by moon, there is full moon eclipse.
