The day before Deepawali is called hell Chaturdashi. Because Lord Krishna killed Narkasur on this day. Narakasur was a sinner, he used to oppress the Gods with the power of his power and did wrong. He held sixteen thousand girls captive. That is why Lord Krishna killed Narkasur. That is why this day is called hell Chaturdashi, and on that day the people celebrate Diwali festival by lighting a lamp with glee the next day on the victory of truth over evil.
