The Devas became afraid of him. They came to Lord Krishna. They begged him to punish Naraka. Krishna agreed.

Krishna flew to Pragjotisha on Garuda, the bird-king.

Krishna's wife Satyabhama also went with him.

A great fight began between Krishna and Naraka. At last Krishna slew Naraka with his Chakrayudha.

Before- dying, Naraka begged Krishna's forgiveness. He also asked Krishna for a boon: "May people who have a holy bath on this day every year be saved, from all evils." Krishna granted the boon.

That is why we celebrate Deepavali every year by lighting lamps and decorating our houses.

This day is also known as Naraka Chaturdasi.
