It is believed that when the son of Ravan, Indrajit was about to born, Ravan wanted all the planets occupied in the 11th house only, as 11th house is the house of fulfillment of desires and gains, but Saturn stretched his leg to the 12th house too, 12th house Saturn is not considered good in Vedic Astrology. When Ravan wanted to assure the planetary alignments before the time of his son’s birth, he came to know the rash action of Saturn about stretching his legs from 11th to 12th house, so he immediately cut off the leg of Saturn.
