After Dhanteras, the second day of Diwali is known as Narak Chaturdashi or more popularly as 'Choti Diwali'. Narak Chaturdashi is the 14th day of the Hindu month of Kartik. This festival is observed to commemorate the victory of Lord Krishna over the demon king, Narakasur. It is believed that on the day of Narak Chaturdashi, Lord Hanuman reached Ayodhya with the news of Lord Ram's return from exile after 14 long years.
