Some important stories related to Holi

There are many stories behind the festival of Holi like the story of Hiranyakashyap-Prahlad, the story of Radha-Krishna and the story of the demon Dhundi. This festival symbolizes the victory of good over evil. Holika Dahan is done with a proper bonfire a day before Holi. It celebrates the killing of Hiranyakashipu’s sister Holika. The bonfire symbolizes the fire in which Holika (Hiranyakashyap’s sister) burnt herself while trying to kill Prahlad.

Rangwali Holi is also celebrated in memory of the immortal love of Lord Krishna and Radha. Once Lord Krishna asked Mother Yashoda why he was not fair like Radha ji. Mother Yashoda jokingly suggested Lord Krishna to apply color on Radha ji’s face, as this would make her complexion black. Then Lord Krishna played with different colors with Radha ji and Gopis. Since then this day is celebrated as the festival of colors. The legend of the ogress (female demon) Dhundi says that she was chased by the people of Prithu due to the curse of Lord Shiva.
