A girl lights candles inside a cricket ground on the eve of Diwali in Allahabad on Nov. 12, 2012. For Hindus, Diwali marks the victory of Ramachandra, the seventh incarnation of the god Vishnu, over the demon king Ravana. Lore has it that Ravana kidnapped Rama's wife Sita, and Ram set off on a 14-year battle to free her. Upon his return with his bride at his side, the villagers lit lanterns to celebrate.
