"It is common to see solar eclipses on Deepavali in India. Earlier, there was an eclipse that occurred on October 17, 1762, which happened to be the day of Deepavali. Even in 1995, there was a total solar eclipse on October 24 which also happened on the festival of lights and the path of totality passed over India at a favourable time of the day," RC Kapoor, former professor of the Indian Institute of Astrophysics, quoted as saying by the newspaper.
