Holi is one of the most colourful festivals of the Hindus. It is celebrated with great joy by the people all over India. Holi is the day of victory of good over evil. As the story goes, Prahlada worshipped Lord Vishnu. His father Hiranyakashipu did not like that. He ordered Prahlada to stop worshipping Lord Vishnu. But Prahlada did not obey. So Hiranyakashipu asked his sister Holika to burn Prahlada. But instead of Prahlada, it was Holika who got burned to ashes. Thus Holi is celebrated as the victory of Prahlada over Holika. On the day of Holi, a big fire is lighted in the evening. People worship the Holi fire with flowers and coconut. The day after Holi is celebrated as ‘Dhuleti’. It is a festival of colours. People play with colours on that day. People sprinkle gulal or coloured water on one another. They dance and sing to the beat of the drums. People have a lot of fun on that day.
