Naraka Chaturdasi, or Narak Chaturdashi, is associated with the Deepavali or Diwali
celebrations. In South India, Naraka Chaturdasi is observed on the Deepavali day.
. Naraka Chaturdasi day celebrates the victory of Lord Krishna over Demon Naraka
(Narakasura or Narakasuran).
It must be noted here that Diwali in South India is celebrated a day before the
celebrations in North India
The legend for celebrating Diwali in North India is based on the return of Lord Ram from
exile to Ayodhya. But in South India the legend is Krishna defeating demon Naraka
with the help of Satyabhama.
Legend has it that Demon Naraka, the son of Bhumi Devi and Vishnu, with the help of
a boon from Brahma became very powerful. The boon was that he could only be killed
by his mother Bhumi Devi. With such immense power Naraka lost his self control and
his ego took over him. He started harassing people and demi-gods.
He also forcibly took away the earrings of Aditi, the mother of devas
Finally, the task of annihilating Naraka fell on Krishna. As always, a clever Lord Krishna
asked his wife Satyabhama, an incarnation of Bhumi Devi, to accompany him to the
battle against Naraka and be his charioteer.
Crackers hold a fascination for both young and old alike. Despite a growing
anti-cracker campaign, there is no dip in its popularity. When the rocket flies high
and burst opens into an umbrella of colourful embers, people from the ground watch
this spectacular in awe, the beauty raining down towards them. The children quickly
light up a fire wheel which dances on the floor, just as a couple of noisy bombs
go off in the background. Every year Diwali arrive in all its sound and sparkle.
Each year on the dark night of Diwali, Crackers of varied colors and sounds fill the
skies heralding India's favourite festival. Diwali or Deepavali in Sanskrit means “
a row of lamps" and fireworks have become a major part of Diwali celebrations.
They form a big part of the Diwali budget in households
Firecrackers come in different varieties from the delightfully visual ones to the ear
deafening noisy ones. Tradition says that the illumination of homes with lights and the
skies with firecrackers is an expression of obeisance to the heavens for the attainment
of health, wealth, knowledge, peace and prosperity. Another possible reason and a
more scientific one for lighting firecrackers is that the fumes produced by them kill
insects and mosquitoes found aplenty after the rains.
The standard varieties of firecrackers include the mild flower pots, the electric crackers,
the popular ground wheel (commonly called as charka), the high flying rockets, the
favourite sparklers and of course the explosive and ear deafening bombs. The colourful
twin angles, a new entrant in the cracker market has caught the fancy of many
customers. A combination of all the above makes an exclusive festive package which
delights young and old alike.
Diwali symbolising the triumph of the good over evil continues to be grandiose in spirit
and celebrated throughout the country. Firecrackers add to the festivities and
as the rows of lamps glow one can hear the crackers go off and see the sparklers
children and adults alike.
