Holi Hai !

This is the mythological story about Indian festival Holi.
Holi is the festival of colour, which is celebrated in the month of Feb – march (Phalguna).

People celebrate Holi with colours and do bonfire.

According to the legend, once there lived a powerful demon king Hiranyakashyap, who considered himself a god and wanted everyone to worship him.

But to his disappointment, his son Prahlad was an ardent devotee of Lord Vishnu,

Hiranyakashyap asked Prahlad to stop praying Lord Vishnu. But Prahlad was a great devotee he refused to worship his father.

At last Hiranyakashyap planned to kill his own son.

Hiranyakashyap had one sister, her name was Holika. She had a boon to remain unscathed by fire.

Hiranyakashyap asked his sister to enter a blazing fire with Prahalad in her lap. Holika agreed to him and she took Prahalad in her lap and entered the fire.

Prahalad chanted the Lord Vishnu name and came out of the blaze unscathed, but the Holika was burnt to ashes, her boon turned to evil for her.

Lord Vishnu saved his ardent devotee Prahalad.

This festival marks the victory of good over evil.

Thus the name of the festival came from the burning of Holika…. Holi Hai … 🙂 🙂

A greedy Dog

Once upon a time, there lived a dog, he was a greedy dog.
One day he was looking for some food. So he was sniffing all over the places.

Suddenly he smelled something good near a house. It was a butcher man’s house.

The dog mouth watered, he could not control himself and he went inside the house.

The butcher man was good enough and he gave a big bone to the dog. The Dog was very happy to have the bone.

But before he takes a bite, he thought to himself “if somebody sees me here with this bone then I will have to share this bone with them, I should go and eat this bone at some quiet place “.

So he began searching some quiet place. He saw a shade at the other end of the bridge built on a river.

Holding the bone in his mouth, he ran towards the bridge.

While crossing the bridge, he saw his own reflection in the river water. The foolish dog thought that some other dog is carrying the bone in his mouth like him.

As he was very greedy, he thought to himself, “It would be great, if I get the other bone, then I will be the luckiest dog”.

And then he barked on his reflection “woof! Woof! ““Splash and his bone fell down in the river”.

Dog realised that it was his own reflection that was carrying the bone. Because of his greediness, dog lost his own bone.

He cried and then he promised to himself that he will not be greedy anymore and will be satisfied with whatever things he has.
