DEEPAVALI

'Which festival do you enjoy most?

Many people would say Deepavali.

On that day you get up early in the morning, bathe, wear new clothes and let off crackers.

You eat a lot of sweets mother has prepared, don't you?

You will now learn something about Deepavali.

King Naraka ruled over Pragjotisha. He was an Asura.

He was Mother Earth's son.

He performed severe tapas. He obtained great power from Brahma in return. He became very proud of his strength. He started doing wicked things.

Aditi was the wife of Rishi Kashyapa. Naraka snatched away her ear-rings,

He also put in prison thousands of women from different parts of the country.
