He is not allowed to stop anywhere. It is said that if he stops, then all day to day activities will be halted on the same day. 

But the horses attached to the chariot get sick and tired of hunger due to lack of rest and love. Seeing this, Surya Dev takes his chariot to the banks of the pond. All of a sudden,  he comes to know that if he stops his chariot then all the activities will stop and troubles will take place.

Then Surya Dev sees two donkeys (Khars) at the river of the pond. He leaves all the horses for consuming water and taking rest and attaches the two donkeys with his chariot.

The horse runs fast while the donkey slows down the chariot. In this pretext, the rotation of one month gets completed somehow and the horses take rest meantime and this time is known as Kharmas. Every solar year is known as solar Kharmas.
