A short story about the powers of Lord Hanuman: Many must have heard about the story where Lord Hanuman has started travelling towards the sun thinking him to be a bright shiny ball. On his way, he met toddler Rahu as well, who was as well on his way to catch the Sun. Hanuman had simply touched Rahu which frightened him. Rahu immediately ran away from their seeking for help. This explains why Hindus worship Hanuman for removing the harmful effects of other planets.
