Here is a short introduction on Diwali and the story behind it :
It is believed that on this day Lord Rama, along with his wife Sita and brother Lakshman returned to their hometown Ayodhya after 14 long years of exile in the jungle after battling and overcoming the fierce demon king called Ravana, who had abducted Sita.
The people of Ayodhya lit lamps in every home to welcome their true King as well as to celebrate his victory over Ravana and also the safe return of their Queen Sita. They danced and lit firecrackers to express their joy over his return.
As mark of respect and worship the festivities continue every year till this today.
