DIWALI – THE INDIAN FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS (The story of Ram & Sita) [feel free to download and forward]
A good man, called Rama, was married to a beautiful princess, called Sita.
 
They had been banished to live in the forest with his brother, Lakshman, by his stepmother, as she wanted her son to be King.
 
Ravana, the Demon king with ten heads, heard of Sita’s beauty and goodness and planned to kidnap her. By magic, he conjured up a golden fawn. She asked Rama to capture it
 
 
 
 
 
He found Sita imprisoned on the island of Lanka. Hanuman, Rama and Lakshman prepared themselves for battle.
 
 
 
 
 
This was one of the greatest battles ever seen. The fighting lasted for ten whole days.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
It looked as though Ravana was going to win, until Rama borrowed a special bow and arrow from the gods and shot him in his belly button. Rama shot Ravana and the battle was won.
The day Ravana was killed is known as Dusshera (the defeat of “ten”)
 
 
 
Rama and his family decided to return home  But it was a moonless, dark night. So the people of Ayodhya had an idea
 
They lit the roads with little lamps to show them the way home. It was a huge celebration that day. This is Diwali
 
 
 
Everyone was happy and Rama and Sita ruled well. Now every year people remember this story at Divali by lighting diva lights inside their homes and fireworks outside.
