Diwali is one of the most auspicious festivals of Hindus. It is the festival of lights and happiness. On this day, Lord Rama along with brother Laksham and wife Sita returned to their kingdom Ayodhya after 14 years of Vanvaas. This festival marks the victory of good over evil. On this day, people worship Maa Laxmi who is the Goddess of wealth and prosperity. People light ‘diyas’ and candles in and outside their home which indicates that there is now light over darkness. These days, people also burn firecrackers which isn’t a great method to celebrate as it only causes harm to the environment.
It is a 5-day festival which includes Dhanteras, Govardhan Pooja Bhai Dooj. Hindus residing in the eastern part of the country associate this festival with Maa Durga or her Avatar Maa Kaali who symbolizes the victory of good over evil. In southern states as well, Diwali is celebrated, as on this day, Lord Krishna destroyed the evil king Naraksura which again marks the victory of good over evil. There is a history related to Diwali in Sikhism as well. The history says that on this day, Guru Hargobind Singh Ji was released from the Gwalior Fort prison by the Mughal Emperor Jahangir. After the release, he arrived at The Golden Temple, Amritsar and that is why The Golden Temple is beautifully decorated on this days every year. It also marks as the day of Bhai Mani Singh’s martyrdom in 1738 due to his failure to pay a fine for trying to celebrate Diwali and also refusing to convert to Islam
