FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS

In India, during the month of oct./nov, we celebreate the ’’DEEPAWALI’’, i.e.. festival of lights.it is said that some five thousand years ago, RAM,(worshipped as GOD), returned to his motherland, Ayodhya after passing the 14 years in jungles alongwith his brother, Laxman and wife Sita, due to the curse of his step-mother, who wanted her son to be the king of Ayodhya.
RAM gladly accepted the curse, and after passing 14 yrs in jungles, where his wife was abducted by the demon king Ravan of Lanka(now srilanka), and there was a battle between the two and Ram killed Ravan and safely returned to Ayodhya with his brother and wife.
ON his arrival at Ayodhya, the local residents celebrated his return with lighting the lamps in every home. to commemorate that event, we celebrate this festival, with earthen lamps, electric bulbs decorating our houses and there is a lot of crackers bursts in jubilation with exchange of sweets.
