Today all of India is celebrating the Holi festival –
heralding the arrival of spring and the passing of winter.
During the day hundreds of thousands of people will pour out into
the streets for a crazy, joyful battle of rainbow-coloured powders.
The festival is partly a celebration of the legend of Prahlad – a young
follower of Vishnu who despite being carried into fire by the demoness
Holika managed a miraculous escape – good triumphed over evil.
In fact, there are many legends that are directly linked to Holi,
and the reasons for celebration have evolved over time.
It is thought that the festival may have existed several centuries
before Christ, and although it started out bearing Holika’s name,
it is now often simply known as ‘The Festival of Colours’.
