There is a story in Ramayana about Sani that after Ravana got control over all the 9 planets, he set them face down on the 9 steps to the way of his throne. Every day, he would step on the back of all the planets to climb his throne. One day Sage Narada came to Ravana’s place and asked Sani, one of the 9 planets, how they could bear king Ravana’s insult towards the planets. Sani replied that now he is helpless, he had to bear that but the time would change when his gaze falls on Ravana everything will change.
Ravana asked Narada how everything was at his place, Narada replied that everything was fine but Ravana insulted all the 9 planets by making them their faces down. It was very insulting when he put his leg on the back of the planets. Then Ravana told his staff to turn the planets around on their back so that it would not hurt them so much. But as soon as the planets turned around, Sani’s gaze fell on Ravana. This affected Ravana very badly. Soon after a few months, he kidnapped Sita, wife of Rama and his downfall had started from then.
Even Lord Shiva, who gave a lot of powers to Ravana, also lost his mind after the gaze of Sani, that much powerful Sani is.
