The Chronicle of Holi

Holi is a festival which is rooted on a tale which narrates more on Hiranyakashipu. He was a king. However, he had a son named Prahlad who followed Lord Vishnu strictly. But on the contrary, the Hiranyakashipu did not liked Lord Vishnu at all. It was his wish to kill Lord Vishnu's so. So he had a sister named, Holika. She was having a mystical robe. The power of the robe was to protect the one using it. So she along with the son of Hiranyakashipu sat on the raging fire. It was an obvious thing that she will be not harmed but son of Hiranyakashipu might be burned to death. But the scenario reversed here completely wherein the son of Hiranyakashipu was safe and sound while Holika, had herself killed by the fire. Hence this means that one who is under the blessed hands of God cannot be harmed, no matter what the enemy attempts to do.
