Story of Narak Chaturdashi
In ancient times, there was a king known as Rantidev. He was very religious and kind in his past-life. Because of the good deeds of his past life, he became a good human being in the present life. When he was about to die and messengers of Yam came to take his sole, they said to him angrily,?O King, we have come here to take you to the hell with us.? By hearing this, king was shocked and he asked them for the reason to taking him to the hell. They replied,?O King, you are famous for your good deeds in this world knows however, your misdeeds are known only by the God.? King asked,?Please do let me know about my misdeeds so that I can find out the solution for the same.? They replied,?Once upon a time, a hungry Brahmin returns from your door and that is the reason you?ve to go to the Hell.? By hearing this, King requested to the messengers,?Please give me only one year?s time.? Messengers accepted his request immediately and they went back. King went to the sages to find out the solution of this problem. Sages said to him,?O King!
On the fourteenth day of the Kartik Krishna Paksha you should fast and worship to Lord Krishna,
feed the Brahmins, give them donations and alms, tell them about your previous offence, request them to forgive you for the same and then you will be free from all your misdeeds.? King did the same as he was suggested by the sages and he was forgiven from all his misdeeds and redirected towards the Vishnu Lok (Heaven).

At night drainages are lightened by deeps (lights) to keep away Narak.
It is said that Goddess Lakshmi is entering in house only in the absence of Narak.
