As many of the colors derive from natural plants, and the festival takes place during a seasonal change, it was believed that the plants and their colors had a medical significance. The festival is due to a legend of King Hiranakashyapu who wanted to be worshipped as a god; most of his people did but not his son Prahlad whose devotion was to Lord Vishnu.
