a dogma laid  to celebrate Diwali or Dīpāvali(Sanskrit: a row of lamps).
Rama came home after 14 years of exile and his victory over Ravana the then ruler of ancient Srilanka.According to the legend , to celebrate this special occasion the people of Ayodhya welcomed Rama by lighting rows of lamps .
Well in South India the case is a bit different as they celebrate Diwali to mark the victory of Krishna over Narakasura.
In Jainism, Diwali marks the attainment of nirvana by Mahavira.
In Sikhism Diwali or "Bandi Chhorh Divas" is celebrated to commemorate the release of Guru Har Govind Ji who was imprisoned along with 52 other Hindu Kings at fort Gwalior by emperor Jahengir.The Golden temple of Amritsar is illuminated on this occasion.
Whatever may be the occasion wht concerns me of the use of fire-crackers and liquor during the so called "celebration".They have become an indispensable part of the occasion.
what junta should know that crackers aren't trendy anymore and also be educated with their harmful effects.
About liquors, every single soul know about itz harm.
"make a pledge and njoy ur future diwali(s) in a smokefree and non-alcoholic environment".cheerz.
