Happy Chhoti Diwali 2021: Images, Wishes, Quotes, Messages and WhatsApp Greetings to Share on Naraka Chaturdashi

Chhoti Diwali, also known as Naraka Chaturdashi, is being celebrated today on November 3. “Naraka” refers to the mythical demon king Narakasura and “Chaturdashi” means the fourteenth day. The annual event takes place on the fourteenth day of Krishna Paksha, in the month of Ashwin of the Hindu calendar.

This year the date falls on November 3, a day before Diwali which is on November 4. As per Hindu mythology, Narakasura captured the territories of the Vedic goddess Aditi, abducted and mistreated many women. Krishna and Satyabhama fought in a battle against Narakasura and slew him.

North-East Indians, however, believe that it was the goddess Kali who killed Narakasura. This is why the day is also observed as Kali Chaudas. Hindus celebrate this day as a victory of good over evil and as a reminder to follow the spiritual path.
