According to an Indian mythological tale, the festival of Holi celebrates the victory of good over evil.

Usually, Holi is celebrated across two days. The first day is marked by ‘Holika Dahan’ where the people lit various borne fires and gather around to offer their prayers.

On the second day, North India celebrates ‘Dulhandi’ where everyone applies colour to each other.
