Brief History of Dhulandi 2020:
- The legend is related to the famed devotee of Vishnu – Prahalada.
- However, Hiranyakashyap (Prahalada’s father) was angry at his son’s devotion to Lord Vishnu. Hence, he asked his demonic sister Holika (Boon of Immunity against Fire) to end Prahalada’s devotion.
- Holika obliged to the request & sat in a Pyre of Fire with Prahalada in her lap. However, she got consumed by the fire &Prahalada was saved.
- Later, Vishnu reincarnated in the form of Narasimha& destroyed Hiranyakashyap. This brought back the faith of people on Lord Vishnu & this occasion was celebrated with throwing colors in the air.
