It must be noted that Diwali is celebrated on the first Amavasya night of the Hindu month Kartik (Kati in Assamese, October/November), holds deep significance rooted in Hindu mythology. According to the ancient tales, Lord Rama’s triumphant return to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile occurred on this Amavasya night. The people of Ayodhya marked the joyous occasion by cleansing their homes, sharing sweets, and illuminating earthen diyas, symbolically dispelling the darkness of the Amavasya night. This historical event has since become the foundation of Diwali celebrations, observed across India with immense enthusiasm and fervor.
