This is why Holi is called the “festival of colours.” People celebrate it by dousing each other in coloured powder and putting it on their faces. A demon king named Hiranyakashyap lived in Hindu mythology, and he had a lot of power. People who were born to him were both Prahlad’s brother and sister. The devil king is said to have been blessed by Lord Brahma. Because of this, no man, animal, or weapon could ever hurt him. Because of this, he is safe. His pride made this blessing into a curse for him. He told his kingdom to worship him instead of God, and he didn’t even spare his own son. He became a hero to everyone, except for his own son, Prahlad. Prahlad didn’t want to worship his father instead of God because he was a real fan of Lord Vishnu. After seeing Prahlad break the rules, the devil king and his sister came up with a plan to kill him. While Holika was burned, Prahlad escaped from his father’s raging inferno without a scratch. Because of his love for God, he was safe from harm. This means that Holi has become a symbol of a victory for good over bad. People in the north of India have a lot of fun with Holi. Pre-Holi rituals are done on the day before the festival. They are called “Holika Dahan.” In this ritual, people often burn wood in public places.

According to one, Hiranyakashyap was killed. Hiranyakashyap was a cruel and ambitious king when he was in charge of the country. A gift of invincibility was given to him by Brahma. To worship and pray for him, people in his kingdom were told to. They were tortured if they didn’t follow him. His only son, Prahlad, was a huge fan of Lord Narayana. Hiranyakashyap was angry because he didn’t follow his father’s rules. In the end, he killed his own child. The evil king told Holika, the evil king’s sister, to burn him to death, and she did it. She was chosen to do the bad thing because she can handle the heat of fire. On the wood pile, Prahlad was on her lap. After the fire started, something completely out of the blue happened. Then, when Prahlad’s faith in Lord Narayana was put to the test, he and Holika were saved. A half animal, half man called Narsingh, killed Hiranyakashyap.
