Holi is a festival of colors celebrated by Hindus across the world. The story of Holi dates back to Hindu mythology, where the follower of Lord Narayana named Prahalad who was the son of a devil named Hyranyakashyap was being tormented by his father and aunty named Holika. Holika had mystical powers with which no fire could burn her so in order to eliminate the child Prahalad she takes him in her arms and sits on fire. Lord Narayan who sees this and saves his follower from fire on the other hand, Holika perishes in fire.
