The god sent a colorful neckpiece to people in order to protect them from the fire. The prince managed to escape, but Holika died. His father was killed with a lightning bolt as a punishment.

 

Bright colors of Holi symbolize the sacred neckpiece of gods, which serves as a sign of peace and justice.
