No, the Solar Eclipse will not poison your food.
In India, people just need excuses to tag a particular thing or phenomenon ‘inauspicious’ or ‘evil’, and natural occurrences like solar and lunar eclipses are no strangers to this sad practice. Though they might have some hidden, scientific significance, covered with layers of sensitive beliefs to appeal to the masses, it’s still good to get the facts right. Today, June 21st, 2020, is a remarkable day in many parts of the world. First of all, it’s the summer solstice, making it the longest day of the year. Second, it’s the International Yoga Day. Also, it’s Father’s Day. But for many, the Annular Solar Eclipse, that’s going to be observed in many parts of Africa and Asia, has the most significance. Certain parts of the world will witness an Annular Solar Eclipse. It is one of the mot beautiful natural phenomenon one can experience (so it safely, though). This type of eclipse occurs when the Moon blocks most of the Sun’s disc, but not entirely. A ‘ring of fire’ is visible, which makes a breathtaking view. Though not as rare as a Total Solar Eclipse, it’s still an occurrence that very few get to experience.
