Happy Holi to all the membersToday is Holi. The festival of colours. it is celebrated in many parts of the country. It is also known as the "festival of love". Today people try to get united together leaving all differences between them.
Many people believe that the evil-minded Holika, the sister of King Hiranyakashyap was burnt by Lord Vishnu on this day. Prahlad became a devotee of Lord Vishnu even though his father never wants anyone in his kingdom to become the devotee of Lord Vishnu. He asked his sister Holika to burn his son by entering into a blazing fire with Prahlad in her lap. Holika had a boon which made her immune to fire. Her boon works only when she enters into fire alone. So Lord Vishnu burnt her to ashes and saved Prahalada.
I convey my best wishes to all the members of ISC on this day. Happy Holi to all of you.
