From the Indian, Mythology Holi draws its origins. The idea of the holiday came from the legend of Radha and Krishna. Holi also takes inspiration from Hindu Vedic scripturesAn evil devil, Holika, was burned to death after her brother Demon King Hiranyakashyap, ordered her to pass through the flames carrying her nephew (his son) Prahlada who had angered him by forsaking evil to become a devotee of Vishnu. While Holika cremated, the boy survived thanked his faith.

The Holi timing is synchronized with the moon. The date of Holi celebration varies every year by following lunar cycles. Rangawali Holi took place on 13th March this year, and the pyres of Holika Dahan will be burned in the past evening.

Before the commencement of Holi, Hindus are advised to moisturize their skin carefully before taking part and a little oil to their hair to ensure the gulal can be easily rinsed out, and it is a bid to pre-empt disaster. The powders thrown should be non-harmful, and they most commonly made from a mix of food dye, flour, and water. Everyone spruces up and gathers on Sunday to distribute gifts of traditional sweets.
