History of Holi festival

Bahut samay pehle ek raja tha Hrinyakashyap. Uski behan ka naam Holika tha. Wo raja apne bete Prahlad ko maarna chahta tha taki wo uski death ka kaaran na ban sake. Holika ke paas vardaan tha jis se aag usse nahi jala sakti thi. So usne prahlad ko apni godi mein bithaya aur aag mein baith gyi. Par prahlad bhagwan Vishnu ke bhakt the. Isliye usse kuch nahi hua par holika jal kar rakh ho gyi. Is tarah se Holi ka fesival manaya jaane laga. Ye festival achaai ki burai pe jeet ka symbol hai.
