It is a Hindu festival . People celebrate this day to mark the occasion of the home - coming of Lord
Rama after He had defeated demon king Ravana . On this day , prayers for success and prosperity are
offered to Laxmi , the Goddess of wealth . Deepavali is the combination of Dhanteras , Choti Diwali and
Badi Diwali or Laxmi Puja . Ganesha , the Lord of new beginning , is also worshiped with Goddess
Laxmi . On the auspicious day , buying of gold is regarded as a holy act . We also remember and
worship our fore-fathers on this day . This day symbolizes the win of light over darkness .
We lit and decorate our home with colored electric bulbs and earthen lamps . We light up various
types of crackers in the evening . Whether it is true or false , many people attach scientific value to this
occasion . They say so many harmful worms are destroyed in the burning of lamps .
So many mishaps are also occurred on this day . We appeal everybody to celebrate the day with care.
We should be more careful for young children while observing the festival , so that such a holy day
would not become a sad day .
