Holi is a celebration of colours which falls on a full moon in March… It is a celebration of adoration and solidarity and praises the triumph of good over evil.
Holi is celebrated with water and colors – these colours are really the colours of delight, colours of affection and colours that fill our life with satisfaction deeply rooted to our souls. It decorates every life with its different tones.
There are numerous stories given as the purposes behind celebrating Holi. A long time ago, there was a King named Hiranyakashyapu, he had a child – Prahlad who was very devoted to God. But, Prahlad’s devotedness maddened Hiranyakashyapu and he wanted to murder his very own child. He asked her sister Holika, who was resistant to flame, to sit in flame taking Prahlad in her lap. Luckily Prahlad, who was honoured by Lord, was unharmed and Holika was burnt to ashes. Now, this day is remembered every year and celebrated as Holi.
