Its just a joke...hUn ess tE nA lArh piYo!

A young second generation Indian in the US was asked by his mother to explain the significance of "Diwali" to his younger brother, this is how he went about it...

" So, like this dude had, like, a big cool kingdom and people liked him.
But, like, his step-mom, or something, was kind of a bitch, and she forced
her husband to, like, send this cool-dude, he was Ram, to some national forest or something...

Since he was going, for like, something like more than 10 years or so..he
decided to get his wife and his bro along... you know..so that they could all chill out together. But Dude, the forest was reeeeal scary ... really man... they had monkeys and devils and like that. But this dude, Ram,kicked ass with
darts and bows and arrows... so it was fine.
But then some bad gangsta boys, some jerk called Ravan, picks up his
babe (Sita).

And boy, was our man, and also his bro, Laxman,... all the gods were with him... So anyways,you don't mess with gods. So, Ram, and his bro get an army of monkeys..Dude, don't ask me how they trained the damn monkeys... just go along with me, ok...

So, Ram, Lax and their monkeys whip this gangsta's in his own hood.
Anyways, by this time, their time's up in the forest..and anyways...it gets
kinda boring,you know... no TV or malls or like that. So,they decided to
hitch a ride back home... and when the people realize that our dude,his
bro and the wife are back home... they thought, well, you know, at least they deserve something nice...

and they didn't have any bars or clubs
those days... so they couldn't take them out for a drink, so they,
decided to smoke and ...and since they also had some lamps, they lit
lamps also... so it was pretty
cooool...you know with all those fireworks... Really, they even had
local band play along with the fireworks... and you know, what, dude,
was the very first, no kidding.., that was the very first
music-synchronized fireworks... you know, like the 4th of July stuff,
just, more cooler
and stuff, you know. And, so dude, that was how, like, this festival started................
