Then, there was Light…

The festival of lights, Diwali has its symbolic significance in celebrating and commemorating the victory of good over evil; the age old battle of ensuring the prevalence of righteousness.

So why do we celebrate with lightings gracing our homes? Let’s take a look back at Hindu mythology.

In the Hindu epic Ramayana, Diwali is seen as the return of Lord Ram, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu and the eldest son of King Dasharath of Ayodhya, from his 14-year exile with his wife and brother after killing the demon king Ravan.

The people of Ayodhya illuminated the kingdom with earthen diyas (oil lamps) and fireworks to mark this victory.

This celebration took place on the night of the new moon of Ashwin (October-November), which is observed till this day amongst Hindus world over. People go door to door gifting sweets, prayers are held for peace and well-being and lights are illuminated in every nook and corner of the house and streets.

Thus, the festival of diwali is an honour of Rama’s victory over Ravana.
