Festival of colors, Holi was officially marked Tuesday at Basantapur with the installation of Chir, a bamboo pole fringed with colorful strips of Cloths. The festival revolves around the holy story of demon king Hiranya Kashyap and his sister Holika who was blessed with the power of God that she won't be affected by the fire at all but she was warned by Lord Vishnu that the boon she had received would be meaningless if it was misused.
