What is Diwali?

Diwali is a holy traditional festival celebrated in India, Sri Lanka, Fiji  and most of Nepal. It is also called as Deepavali, Devali or Divali. Also referred to as “Festival of Light”, it signifies triumph of light over darkness.It is celebrated by the Indians all over the world.
The history of Diwali is connected with Rama- Ravana War (Between India and Sri Lanka). Ravana Was a demon king who was doing lot evil things. Lord Rama had to go to Forest for 14 years to full fill a promise his father given to his third wife. As per the story King Dasarath promised his third wife that she can ask 2 boons at any time of life from him and if it is under his ability he will fulfill that request. When she came to know that King Dasarath is going to crown Lord Rama as king she asked the two boons. One of the boon was to send Lord Rama to forest for 14 years and another one is to make her son as the King.
King Dasarath was in big mental tension when he here this. However when Lord Rama Came to know about this he himself went to forest along with his wife and another brother to forest. Demon king Ravana has kidnaped Ramas wife. So rama build a bridge to Srilanka (Adam's Bridge) and defeated Demon king Ravana.
By that time he has completed 14 years in forest and he decided to return to Ayodya to take over the kingdom from his brother (Third queens son), who was ruling the kingdom by keeping lord ramas foot wear on the throne. He was so upset by his mothers cunning act and requested lord Rama to come back and take over the kingdom before, which has been refused by Lord rama siting their father's promise is bigger than ruling the kindom.

When People of Ayodya came to know that Lord Rama is returning they welcomed him lighting lamps all over the kingdom. Then onwards that day is celebrated as Diwali by lighting lamps all over the place.
