Happy Diwali Story
Thousands of year ago in the Ayodhya, there was a king named Dasaratha who ruled along with his three queens and four princes. The eldest son Ram and his wife Sita lived happily with other prince brothers and their wives. One day one of Dasaratha’s wives get jealous of Ram and demanded that he must be exiled to the forest for 14 years so that her son, Bharat, be made king.
He once promised her to fulfill any wish of her. So, Ram set off on foot accompanied by his loving wife Sita, and loyal younger brother, Lakshman. After few years of exile a demoness named Surpanakha saw Ram and fell for his looks. She asked Ram to marry her but he refused and asked her to go to Lakshman. Lakshman too refused. Then angry Surpanakha showed her true form and Lakshman cut off her nose and ears.
She went to her brother Ravan, the demon King of Lanka. Thus, with the help of another demon who took the form of a golden deer, he distracted Ram and Lakshman and kidnapped Sita from their hut. When Ram returned he searched for Sita. He came across an army of monkeys and bears that agreed to help them. Among them was a monkey named Hanuman who had once vowed to be at Ram’s service.
