It is referred to as the Hindu festival of lights, and marks the victory of good over evil. It is said on this day Lord Ram, his wife Sita, and brother Lakshman returned to Ayodhya after defeating Ravana and conquering Lanka. It is then that the people of Ayodhya decorated the entire city with the earthen lamps to welcome them and it is from here that the custom of lighting homes with “diyas” came into being. This day is also celebrated with lighting firecrackers to keep all evil away and signify prosperity.
