As per the history goes, Prahlad, Hiranyakashipu’s own son disagreed and remained devoted to Lord Vishnu. This did not bid well with his father who tried to inflict severe punishments on Prahlad, none of which had any effect on the boy’s devotion and belief. Finally, Holika, Prahlad’s paternal aunt tricked him into sitting on a pyre with her. Holika was blessed with a cloak that was immune to fire. Holika had devised that she would wear the cloak and will not be burned by the fire while Prahlad will burn and eventually die. However, this did not happen, as the fire raged, the cloak flew from Holika and wrapped around Prahlad instead of saving him and killing Holika.
On the occasion of Holi, Special delectable items like gujiyas, malpua, dahi wada, nimki, bhang and thandai are served to guests and prepared in homes all over India.
Happy Holi 2019!
