Why SOLAR ECLIPSE OCCURS?
Sometimes when the Moon orbits Earth, the Moon moves between the Sun and Earth. When this happens, the Moon blocks the light of the Sun from reaching Earth. This causes an eclipse of the Sun, or a solar eclipse. During a solar eclipse, the Moon casts a shadow onto Earth.

🤔 HOW IT WORKS ⁉
HOW RO WORKS?

(kindly inform, if given info is differ from actual facts🙏🏻)
Bhim & Hanuman are Vayu Putra, then why Bhim not able to travel through air, like Hanuman Ji?
Both are the son sons of Vayu, but Hanuman was blessed by Vayu who granted him the ability to fly.
Hanuman was a Vanara who have a natural tendency to take high leaps. But being a human Bhima did’nt get a advantage of this.
Hanuman was not only Vayputra but also a avatara of Lord Shiva.
Hanuman was of Treta Yuga , so he would have more ability and capabilities to fly. And for Bhima he was born in Dwapara Yuga and after each Yuga strength decreases.
