The story behind the Holi festival is that once in the ancient days, there was a king named Hiranya Kashyap who had a son called Prahlad. The son was a pure soul, devotee of Lord Vishnu (the highest Hindu god for maintenance), whereas his father never liked to see him worshiping Lord Vishnu. But Prahlad's devotion enraged Hiranya Kashyap and instigated to conspire a plan to kill him by fire. He asked her sister Holika, who had received a special power of being fire proof from the god, to destroy Prahlad by her power. As per instruction, with a strong intention of destroying Prahlad, Holika took him in her lap and sat in the fire. Surprisingly, Prahlad who did not have fire proof blessings, survived from the fire without any harm, while Holika got burnt in the fire despite of the blessing from the god. From this day, Holi festival started marking the victory of good over the evils.
