Twenty-Seven wives of Chandra (Moon) were the daughters of Daksha. But Chandra used to spend more time with Rohini and not with the other twenty-six sisters. These sisters made a complaint to their father, Daksha, that Moon does not spend enough time with any one of them but is engrossed with Rohini. Dasha then cursed Moon of an ailment which was close to tuberculosis. Due to this curse moon started losing weight and becoming thin (waning). As we all know that Moon is a nourisher; due to this waning of the Moon, the earthly beings (animals and plants) began to die. All then went to Shiva to reverse the curse.

But by this time, Tara was already pregnant with Moon’s child. Eventually, Budh (Mercury) was born to Tara.
