Deepwali, meaning a string of diya or lights, is one of the most popular festivals in India. Deepwali is usually celebrated on the 21st day after Dussehra.  It commemorates the return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile. Legend has it that, Lord Rama along with his wife and brother had returned to Ayodhya on the 21st day of killing Ravana, the king of Lanka. Dussehra marks the death of Ravana. Diwali, like most Indian festivals, has utmost significance. It celebrates the triumph of good over evil, virtues over vices, and love over hate.
