From Bhakta Prahalad times. The sister of Hiranya Kasapu ,the father of Prahalad,wanted to kill Prahalad by burning through her. But in the process got burnt.Her name was Holika.We have been observing holi to mark that day.

The vibrant Gujarat reverberates with the chants of the folk song-'Govinda ala re, zara matki sambhal Brijbala..'. People, specially the youth of the state are high on the spirit of the festival. So much energy can be seen amongst the boys and girls of this state as they move in processions 'tolis'. Drenched in coloured waters boys cheerfully warn people to take care of their pots of butter and milk. The tradition has its origin from the legend of Lord Krishna who was known to steal butter and milk from any accessible house in his village.
