What do you mean by "real explanation"? The local form of Faraday's law is one of the basic laws in physics. It cannot be somehow derived from simpler laws. It was discovered by Faraday making many careful experiments and observations and then brought into a mathematical form by Maxwell in analyzing these experiments. The form of the Maxwell equations in terms of vector fields as we learn them today is due to Heaviside.
