As per the widespread legends, Lord Rama is considered as the

Victory of
Rama – The Legend

The stories and glorious deeds of Lord Rama are
renowned throughout the world. Here we will discuss the story of victory of Rama
over Ravana, the demon. According to Ramayana, Diwali celebrates the return of
Ram, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu and the eldest son of King Dasharath of
Ayodhya, from his 14-year exile with Sita and Lakshman after killing the Ravan,
a demon king. The people of Ayodhya lighted the kingdom with earthen diyas (oil
lamps) and fireworks to celebrate the return of their king. The legend of Rama
says, Lord Rama was the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu. He was a great
warrior King. His father Dashratha, the King of Ayodhya sent him to exile along
with his wife Sita and his younger brother Lakshman, on his wife’s (Kaikeyi)
insistence. After 14 years of exile, in which he puts an end to the demon
Ravana, Lord Rama returned to his Kingdom Ayodhya.

Ravana caged Sita and
enforced her to marry him but she didn’t agree to this. Lord Rama with the help
of Hanuman, Sugreev and Bali and their “Vaanar Sena” attacked Lanka and after a
severe battle, got Sitaji released from the control of Ravana. After this
victory of Good over Evil, Rama returned to Ayodhya.

According to the
legend, people welcomed them by lighting rows of clay lamps in Ayodhya. Great
celebrations were held and everyone was happy for Rama to be the King of
Ayodhya. This celebration took place on the night of the new moon of Ashwin
(October-November). From that day onwards; people celebrate this occasion as the
most delightful festival of India and of the Hindu Religion. Even today Diwali
celebration means -happiness, fireworks and sweets.

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